An exciting talk on the discovery of Tut’s tomb in 1922–and the aftermath of Carter’s discovery. How did this great find change the world?

About this Event

After Howard Carter discovered the tomb of Tutankhamen in 1922, laden with golden riches and ancient treasures the like of which had never been seen, the world fell into a trance. Egyptomania hit. Everything Egypt became obsession: the treasures within Tut’s tomb influenced culture, art, design, fashion and architecture. Everyone wanted to embrace the Egyptian style, pay tribute to Cleopatra and Rameses – and glean some of their secrets of immortality. Travel to Egypt surged, Canadians sailed the Nile in droves, picking up replicas, mementos, inspired ideas and a taste for the exotic. Let’s embark on a journey back 100 years ago, when the world became enraptured with the treasures of Tut. Learn about the discovery of Tutankhamen and how it influenced the world around him in the 1920s…. all the way until today, almost a century later!
