Bob Brier talking about Unknown Man E

"Brier recently spoke as part of a series held at Camden County College's Dennis Flyer Theater. The lectures dealt entirely with the mysteries and history of Ancient Egypt and brought to the college experts on the subject from all around the world.Not originally scheduled to speak that night, Brier, whose wife was unable to speak due to an illness, filled in and provided a glimpse into the mysteries surrounding an ancient mummy that had been labeled only by the name Unknown Man E". Bob Brier is quoted extensively in this piece, where he describes how the mummy was treated when first discovered in 1881, and why he believes that it is actually the mummy of Prince Pentawere, son of Ramesses III, who was believed to be involved in a royal harem conspiracy. Se the above page for an account of the lecture.
