About The Event
Dr. Jimmy Albright, archaeologist and professor at Missouri Western State University, shares the stories and shows the images and items from his trips to Egypt and the River Nile. There will be presentations, which will both be held on Thursday, September 12 with one at noon and the second one at 6 p.m. Dr. Albright will have handouts on Egypt and information on a group trip he will be escorting in May of 2020, for anyone who is interested in seeing the wonders of the Nile and Egypt for themselves. The trip will go from Alexandria to Abu Simbel and include a 5-day cruise on the River Nile.
Dr. Jimmy Albright has taught “Introduction to Archaeology” and “Mediterranean Archaeology” for over 32 years at MWSU while also making regular trips to Israel to work on excavations there. He has led seventeen tours of Greece and Turkey, as well as many tours of Israel, Italy, and Egypt.
“The ancient religious, ceremonial, and commercial artifacts help us understand what life was like during the age of pharaohs. You gain so much insight into the history of this ancient land when you visit the historical excavations at Cairo, Luxor, and Edfu. There is nothing like a cruise down the River Nile. People tell me that learning about the area and seeing it is life changing and unforgettable,” said Dr. Albright.
The program will be held at the St. Joseph Museum, 3406 Frederick Avenue, at noon and again at 6 p.m. The event is open to the public and admission is free. No reservations are required.
