The Colleges of Arts & Sciences of the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa continues its Downtown Speakers Program with a special lecture on April 8, by Robert Littman, professor of classics and teacher of ancient Egyptian language. This free talk will be held from noon to 1 p.m. at the American Savings Bank Tower (formerly the Pacific Tower, Bishop Square corner of S. King & Alakea), 1001 Bishop Street, 8th Floor, Room 805. It is a brown-bag event, so attendees are invited to bring their lunches.

The ancient Egyptians had a preoccupation with life after death that resulted in the pyramids, great funerary palaces and tombs of Egypt. These monuments have preserved Egyptian culture and history for us. Littman will discuss his current excavation project in Egypt, medical studies of the Royal Mummies of Egypt, which include the pharaohs of the New Kingdom, such as Ramses the Great and Tutankamun.
