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.
Dr. Steve is BACK! ("I Want My Mummy," CSI Egypt, X-Raying the Pharaohs) to talk about his adventures in Petra!

Is archaeology really like Indiana Jones? Are there deadly traps hidden inside ancient tombs? Does the floor under your feet suddenly collapse into a bottomless pit? How do you actually “dig” at a real dig? Dr. Steve will talk about his experiences, basics in archaeology in this highly illustrated presentation.
