Nesperennub to go on tour

"The Gulf Coast Exploreum Science Center is working to bring a 3,000-year-old Egyptian mummy to town in spring 2006, in hopes of renewing the wave of tourism generated by the Dead Sea Scrolls exhibit, Exploreum director Mike Sullivan said Monday. Nesperennub, the mummified former priest of Karnak, is currently housed at the British Museum in London, and starting in mid-September will embark on a tour that includes stops in Houston, Tokyo and possibly Mobile". For those of you who, like me, are somewhat hazy on U.S. geography, the Exploreum is located in Mobile, south Alabama, on the Gulf of Mexico. See the article for more information.
