With Sherine El Sabae.
2022 marked the history of Egyptology with the November 4th centenary of the discovery of the intact tomb of King Tutankhamun by Howard Carter and Lord Carnarvon in 192. This discovery still captures the public imagination.
In part 1, Sherine ElSebaie followed the footsteps of the excavators leading to the discovery and explored the unique contents of the tomb. But don't worry if you missed it. This lecture, Part 2, will explore the aftermath of the opening of the chamber and its impact on Egyptomania. Dr. Sherine El Sebaie is a Ph.D. candidate at the University of Toronto.
