[ARCHIVED] King Tut 100th Anniversary Exhibit

King Tutankhamun's sarcophagus.

A series of posters and artifacts will be on display during the month of March uncovering the details of one of the most significant archaeological discoveries of the past 100 years. In November 1922, archeologist Howard Carter uncovered the tomb of the ancient Egyptian ruler King Tut. Inside the tomb he found some 5,300 artifacts dating back to 1350 BC. These treasures were virtually intact from the time the king was buried. There were statues, jewelry, furniture, and even 6 chariots. It took Carter and his team some 10 years to catalog, conserve, and pack the artifacts - then ship them to the Cairo Museum.

Posters and artifacts are courtesy of Rollin Phipps, a retired instructor from the University of Texas at Arlington who specializes in ancient Egyptian history. Rollin will also present a talk detailing this astonishing discovery on Sunday, March 20 from 2-3:30pm.  Registration is not required.
