In History Channel's hit reality series
"Chasing Mummies," cameras follow
closely as legendary Egyptologist Dr. Zahi
Hawass and his cadre of fellows unearth
astonishing finds and tackle some of the
world's greatest archaeological challenges. David Cheetham, archaeologist and star of
Chasing Mummies, will be on hand for a
brief lecture and Q&A with the audience.
"Chasing Mummies," Episode 5:
SUNKEN. Zahi has finally permitted
archaeologists from the Hellenic Institute to
dive into the Mediterranean Sea and bring
up a relic confirmed to be part of
Cleopatra’s historic shrine. But with the
persistent problems of permits and an
impending storm approaching, Zahi's fury
is felt by all the incompetent people
working to get this 2000-year-old pylon out
of Alexandria's Eastern Harbor.
IMMEDIATELY FOLLOWED BY:
THE MUMMY, 1932, Universal, Dir. Karl Freund. Boris Karloff gives one of his finest performances as
the 3000-year-old Egyptian who returns from the dead to reclaim reincarnated love Zita Johann, in
cinematographer-turned-director Karl Freund’s marvelously atmospheric chiller - easily the best of
many mummy films to come. Lecture and discussion between films with archaeologist David
