The Saint Louis Science Center’s current exhibition Lost Egypt: Ancient Secrets, Modern Science has sparked an interest in the afterlife in ancient Egyptian culture.  Earlier this month, Michele Loyet, Adjunct Professor on Near Eastern and Egyptian Archaeology  at Webster University, spoke at the Science Center on the topic of mummification in Egypt.  She was Don Marsh’s guest on St. Louis on the Air to talk about the afterlife tradition in ancient Egypt.
