Lecture – Tutankhamun: the Life, Death and Strange Afterlife of an Egyptian King
Wednesday, May 11
6:30 p.m.
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. Hardwick will also incorporate the latest news on the possible existence of further, undiscovered chambers in his tomb.
