We couldn’t let 2022 pass without doing something special to mark the centenary of Howard Carter’s discovery of the treasure trove tomb of Tutankhamun in 1922! There is so much more to Tutankhamun than all these ‘Wonderful Things’… A boy-king born into the controversial Amarna period that would be known the world over thousands of years after his death. Join Professor Aidan Dodson online for 6 lectures exploring his life and his modern legacy.
Over these three Sunday afternoons we will be exploring the journey of being Tutankhamun – during his life, and during the millennia following his death. The first two weeks will concentrate on his reign and monuments, the third on the way his memory was expunged in the years following his death, and then his former existence pieced together over the past two centuries.
