Bob Brier is the enormously popular Egyptologist known around the world as Mr. Mummy. He has conducted research on pyramids and tombs in 15 countries as a senior research fellow at Long Island University. He is the author of 7 books, including The Murder of Tutankhamen, and the host of highly-rated, award-winning, multi-part series for TLC including Mummy Detective. Brier's lectures for The Learning Company are one of the company's most successful offerings. In 1996, Jean-Pierre Houdin left his highly successful independent Parisian architecture firm to devote himself to solving the mystery of the great pyramid. He has been awarded the Montogolfier Prize (awarded for lifetime achievement to still active engineers and scientists) for his research.
