Tutankhamun is probably the best-known of Egyptian rulers today; yet he was almost totally forgotten in Egypt within a couple of generations of his death. In this entertaining lecture, HMNS curator Tom Hardwick will place Tutankhamun in the context of his time, and looks at how-and why-the boy king’s legacy has been publicized and exploited.
