Pyramid Secrets are Topic of Sept. 24 Lecture

UALR will present the lecture “Secret of the Great Pyramid: A New Theory of How It Was Built,” by Dr. Bob Brier at 1 p.m., Thursday, Sept. 24, in the Stella Boyle Smith Concert Hall in UALR’s Fine Arts Building. Admission is free and open to the public.

Brier will discuss how the Egyptians used radical engineering ideas to pull two-ton stone blocks while building the Great Pyramid and debunk earlier construction theories.

Known as “Dr. Mummy,” Brier is a senior research fellow at the C.W. Post Campus of Long Island University. He pioneers research in mummification practices and has studied mummies, including King Tut and Ramses the Great. The UALR lecture is in conjunction with the Arkansas Art Center’s exhibition “World of the Pharaohs: Treasures of Egypt Revealed” opening on September 25.
