Join us for an exclusive chance to hear how the FBI and MFA collaborated to crack a 4,000-year-old “cold case” to discover the true identity of the mummy head of Djehutynakht using state-of-the-art DNA analysis. Learn about challenges of extracting DNA from Egyptian mummies, and the potential further application of this research to archeology and Egyptology.
