When Tutankhamun’s tomb was discovered in 1922, the objects in it created a sensation. For decades the objects have dazzled the world and been the centerpiece of the Cairo Museum. Even so, the circumstances of Tutankhamun’s death and burial have always raised questions. The construction of new museums in Egypt, and the relocation of these objects, has created a new opportunity for study of many of these objects.
In a lecture titled A New Look at the Treasures of Tutankhamun's Tomb, Dr. Robert Bianchi, chief curator at the Ancient Egyptian Museum Shibuya [Tokyo] will focus on the reevaluation of objects from this most famous of tombs.
This lecture is co-sponsored by the Atlanta Chapter of the American Research Center in Egypt and the Carlos Museum.
