King Tut's Tomb with Dr. Steve

Tuesday, September 15, 2015 - 7:00pm
Event location: 
Blue Bell

Breaking News: Are There Hidden, Undiscovered, Rooms in the Tomb of King Tut?

In August, 2015, a prominent British Egyptologist published a new study on the tomb of Tutankhamun. In that study, he argues that in his opinion, there may be two additional, as yet unopened, rooms inside Tut's tomb. This lecture examines these new arguments in depth, and in light of the tomb's original discovery. If two more rooms do in fact exist, they may be undisturbed, a highly intriguing possibility - to say the least. You won't want to miss this image filled presentation with an entertaining, and popular speaker! 

For students in grades 5 & up. No registration.

How do you actually “dig” at a real dig? Dr. Steve will talk about his experiences, basics in archaeology in this highly illustrated presentation.
