Archaeologist opens tomb of Egyptian vizier
No one who has ever visited Egypt -- seen the sands and pyramids, gotten lost in the chaos of the cities -- would ask what attracts archaeologist Penny Minturn to the country.

"The people are kind and friendly and the antiquities are incredible," she said.

And, being from Arizona, she has an affinity for the desert.

Dr. Minturn will discuss her recent trip to the Middle Cemetery in Abydos, Egypt at 1 p.m. Friday in room 301 at Gila Community College.
