Treasures from the Tomb of Tutankhamun
“Everywhere, the Glint of Gold”
Hosted by: Dr. Steve
This lecture first recounts the extraordinary chain of events leading up to Howard Carter’s discovery of King Tut’s tomb, then we will see amazing images of the breathtaking array of spectacular ancient artifacts it contained, including gold, precious stones, sculpted alabaster and beautifully carved wooden objects. Many of the artifacts you will see on-screen represent much more than first meets the eye (hint: the brooch above actually is cryptographic writing). Come and spend time inside King Tut’s tomb – without having to travel to Egypt!
Open to the public. Call for more information.
