Wonderful Things! Tutankhamun's Tomb and Treasures Lucia Gahlin Thursday 05 March 2020

The discovery of Tutankhamun's tomb by Howard Carter in 1922 was arguably the greatest archaeological discovery of the twentieth century. The name of this boy-king conjures up wonderful imagery and mysterious tales of the pharaohs. An exhibition of the treasures from the tomb is being held at the Saatchi Gallery until May 2020 before the items return to a new museum in Cairo.

We have planned an additional Special Interest Day to coincide with this important exhibition, when our lecturer, Lucia Gahlin, Egyptologist, will lead us through a review of the discovery of the tomb and its treasures.

The day includes three presentations, coffee on arrival, buffet lunch and soft drinks and will cost £35. Tickets will be sold at the lecture on 23rd January 2020.
