Afternoon Lecture
Beneath the Sands of Egypt: An Archaeologist Explores the Valley of the Kings
After nearly 200 years of exploration, and more than 90 years since the finding of the tomb of Tutankhamun, the Valley of the Kings continues to produce new discoveries and insights. In this lecture, Dr. Donald P. Ryan, Division of Humanities, Pacific Lutheran University, shares a few of the fascinating surprises he has uncovered while investigating some of the lesser-known tombs in the ancient royal cemetery. These include the rediscovery of a tomb in which the recently identified mummy of the female pharaoh Hatshepsut was found, and indications that a surprising number and variety of individuals were buried amidst the pharaohs in the Valley. Presented by the American Research Center in Egypt—Pennsylvania Chapter. Admission: $10; $7, PennCard holders; $5, students with ID; free for ARCE-PA members.
