Just when you think you know everything there is to know about mummies, new ones are unburied! Award-winning author Kerrie Hollihan draws from her book Mummies Exposed! to go beyond familiar Egyptian mummies to uncover the secrets of mummified bodies from around the globe. New technologies uncover unknown facts about old favorites, such as Ötzi the Ice Man found in the Alps, and recent discoveries reveal mummies rarely discussed before, like Hungary’s Orlovits family laid to rest in a forgotten church crypt. Among those included are the first  Moche warrior priestess found in Peru, bog bodies sunk in Irish wetlands, the body of a Buddhist monk hidden within a sculpture, and more.

Discover all the mysteries and facts about mummies that are creepy—and true!

Program Details


Kerrie opens the program by recalling her visits as a kid to see mummies at Chicago’s Field Museum and the world famous exhibit of King Tutankhamun in 1977. Years later, a publisher asked her to write a mummy book, and the rest is history!

Kerrie then questions participants: What do you know about mummies? How do you feel about mummies?

Based on prior teacher input, Kerrie will discuss three to four examples of mummies in her book, MUMMIES EXPOSED! Students will be encouraged to ask questions during the presentation, and there will be time for a Q&A.


Students will discover both the history and science behind the discovery and research on individual mummies.

Students will learn that research on mummies crosses cultures as well as educational disciplines.

Students will meet archeologists, anthropologists, and scientists who have worked with mummies around the world.

Students will develop an appreciation that mummies were once living humans, in many ways not so different from themselves.

Students will be encouraged to appreciate curiosity and wonder for their own sake, as well as the importance of “unplugging” to spend time in thought, play, and reflection.
