Egypt, 1922. British explorer Howard Carter has been supervising excavations in the Valley of the Kings for years. A doorway covered in hieroglyphic writing is discovered. Carter manages to have a look through this mysterious doorway while accompanied by financier Lord Carnavon, who’s funded the excavations. “Can you see anything?” asks Carnavon, to which Carter replies, “Yes, wonderful things!” Those now famous words would mark the discovery of the tomb of Tutankhamun, an ancient Egyptian pharaoh. The rest, as they say, is history.
Now is your chance to see many of the ‘wonderful things’ that were unearthed at Tutankhamun: Treasures of the Golden Pharaoh. Taking place at the iconic Saatchi Gallery, this exhibition unveils more than 150 original objects from the pharaoh’s tomb.
Fondly referred to as King Tut, this young man was the last of his royal family to rule during the end of the 18th dynasty – about 1,300 years before Christ. Get a fascinating insight into his life, his short time in power and the all the incredible planning that went into the afterlife.
A total of 60 ancient artefacts within the exhibition have travelled out of Egypt for the first time, meaning this is an exclusive opportunity to discover many incredible treasures before they are permanently installed within the Egyptian Grand Museum.
