The Umi Project

Friday, March 25
7 – 8:30 pm
Carrico/Fort Thomas Branch

Umi, a mummified Egyptian boy aged 3-5, resides at the Cincinnati Museum Center.

In partnership with CMC, Northern Kentucky University’s Allied Health Department used X-Rays and a CT scanner to create a 3-D image of Umi, which revealed new information about the boy—right here in Campbell County!

What did they discover? Learn more about their findings from members of the department during this presentation.

The event will include a short reception following the discussion.
