About this event

The discovery of the tomb of the King Tut in 1922 was arguably the most famous archaeological find of the 20th century. How was the tomb discovered? Who were the scholars responsible for the find? Who was the Boy King and why did his tomb survive largely intact for thousands of years while those of so many other pharaohs were lost? This well-illustrated presentation seeks to answer those questions as we celebrate the centennial of this amazing discovery.
