About this event

July 27, 4:00 pm. Known far and wide as Mr. Mummy, Egyptologist Bob Brier returns to reveal “The Murder of King Tutankhamen.” Three thousand years ago, King Tut, a 19-year-old pharaoh, died mysteriously. A small tomb was hastily readied, his body was mummified, fabulous jewelry and furniture were gathered and the tomb sealed. Then silence. Brier will describe the extraordinary discovery of the tomb in 1922 by Howard Carter. Examining the king’s skull, a letter from his widowed queen and a royal ring, Brier will further unravel the mystery of the king’s death, presenting his theory that the young pharaoh was murdered.
