Virtual Lunchtime Lecture: Golden Mummies: Adapting Funerary Beliefs and Traditions

Join NCMA Egyptologist Caroline Rocheleau, director of research and curator of ancient art, as she discusses how funerary beliefs and customs blended at a time when Egypt was ruled by the Macedonian Greeks and the Romans.
