Description

"

Penn Museum joins with West Philadelphia neighbors and friends at the Clark Park Science Discovery Day. It's springtime, and the Penn Museum booth focuses on ""Pharaoh's Flowers: The Botanical Treasures of King Tut's Tomb."" Visitors will have the opportunity to see, smell, and learn about the medicinal and decorative purposes of the plants buried in the tomb of Egypt's most famous pharaoh, before making a related craft to take home. Dr. Stephen Philips, a Research Assistant in the Penn Museum's Egyptian section, is on hand to bring the story of the discovery of and research around Tut's tomb to life. He is a physical anthropologist who specializes in the analysis of ancient Egyptian human skeletal remains, mummies and mummification techniques, as well as the archaeology of the Giza plateau.
