Ancient Egyptian culture and artifacts have mesmerized people since Ancient Greece and Rome. And why not? Ancient Egypt has pyramids, the Sphinx, hieroglyphs, cool looking deities, scarabs and of course mummies. Tonight on Inquiry we talk with BOB BRIER, Senior Research Fellow at Long Island University/LIU Post about his rollicking cultural history EGYPTOMANIA: OUR THREE THOUSAND YEAR OBSESSION WITH THE LAND OF THE PHAROAHS. Tune in tonight and learn why it seemed every country wanted an obelisk, what is the best film about Ancient Egypt and much, much more.
