SHARE LEADER OF BYU DIG IN EGYPT TO LECTURE AT EDUCATION WEEK

C. Wilfred Griggs, professor of ancient scripture at Brigham Young University, will be one of the featured lecturers at Education Week in Salt Lake City June 20-22.

Education Week is an instructional forum for members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints featuring sessions on varying topics from renowned lecturers and teachers.In a lecture entitled "BYU Digs Egypt," Griggs will discuss some of his remarkable discoveries in archaeology. He directed the dig that led to the recent discovery of an unplundered tomb in Seila, Egypt.

The discovery yielded two well-preserved mummies from a key period in Egyptian history. One mummy entombed in a finely crafted cedar coffin is being hailed as the best-preserved mummy ever found from the late pre-Christian era.

Classical pianist David Glen Hatch will be featured in a special Tuesday (June 20) evening concert performing numbers from Mozart, Rachmaninoff, Chopin, Liszt and others.

A special "Best of Especially for Youth" program has been scheduled for Saturday (June 17) from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. to accommodate the youth 14 to 19 years of age.

All events will be at the LDS Institute of Religion located on the University of Utah campus at 1800 E. South Campus Drive. Tickets can be purchased through the BYU Salt Lake Center, located at 1521 E. 3900 South, or directly through ward and stake Education Week representatives.
