Dr. Andrew Nelson - who has been involved in the planning and execution of the new Ancient Egypt exhibit - is a specialist in the use of paleo-radiology and virtual imaging in the analysis and presentation of Egyptian mummies from the University of Western Ontario. He also created the Internet Mummy Picture Archiving and Communication Technology (IMPACT) radiological and context database, which is large-scale, multi-institutional, collaborative research project devoted to the digital preservation and scientific study of mummified remains, and the mummification traditions that produced them, using non-destructive medical imaging technologies. Our mummy, Nesiur is now part of this database. Dr. Nelson often cites the partnership with DSNH as one of the important things to emerge from the project!
Dr. Nelson have decided to come see the new Ancient Egypt exhibition at the Boonshoft. He will be here Saturday morning and has agreed to do a talk in the planetarium FOR FREE at 10:00 a.m.!
