The 2022 Flagstaff Festival of Science will celebrate “Pyramids to The Peaks” on September 23- October 2, 2022 in Flagstaff, Arizona.
World-renowned Egyptologist Zahi Hawass, Ph.D., will begin the free, 10-day adventure with a compelling presentation sharing his passion for archeological discovery in the fascinating world of pharaohs and Egyptian gods. The W. L. Gore & Associates Keynote presentation featuring Dr. Hawass is scheduled for 7 p.m., Friday, Sept. 23, in Northern Arizona University’s Ardrey Auditorium.
Dr. Hawass will describe world class discoveries in his keynote presentation including the Tombs of the Pyramid Builders at Giza and the Valley of the Golden Mummies at Bahariya Oasis. One of his most significant research efforts was the Egyptian Mummy Project, which used modern forensic techniques such as CT and DNA analysis to answer questions about royal mummies, including King Tutankhamun’s family, and solve the murder mystery of Ramesses III.
“I know Flagstaff will share in this great excitement as we kick off the 34th annual Flagstaff Festival of Science with world renowned and accomplished Egyptologist Zahi Hawass. We are thrilled that such a knowledgable expert is traveling to our mountain town this year,” says Virginia Watahomigie, Festival Board President.
Full program of events to include Science in the Park, presentations, workshops, and guided tours all taking place Sept. 23- Oct. 2. With many programs led by outstanding Flagstaff scientists, Festival-goers will also have the opportunity to learn about other ancient cultures in this year’s archeological-themed festival.
