Bob Brier is arguably the world’s most famous Egyptologist. Professor at Long Island University in New York, where he has tenure, he teaches both philosophy and Egyptology. A popular host on Learning Channel’s Great Egyptians series, he was the first person since ancient times to mummify a human in the ancient Egyptian style.
