When Howard Carter first peered through a hole into the tomb of Tutankhamun in 1922 he was asked if he could see anything – “Yes, wonderful things!” was his reply. The tomb contained some of the most exquisite treasures ever discovered and in this lecture, you too will discover their beauty, hear about their exciting discovery and the diary entries made by Carter, learn of the symbolism in their design, the materials, craftsmanship and what has become of them.
This lecture will be delivered in a hybrid format – you can attend via Zoom from your home and in person at the Widcombe Social Club.
