We all know his name but how much do you really know about the boy-king, the famous Pharaoh, Tutankhamun? Learn about his time, his people and the famous discovery of his final resting place.  

For this event we will explore objects from our Ancient Egyptian handling collection, particularly those from the Amarna period, more than 3000 years ago. The Amarna period of Ancient Egyptian was a turbulent time in history. It started with the heretic pharaoh Akhenaten and ended during the reign of his son Tutankhamun.

This event will run 10.30-12.30 and 1.30-3.30 on Thursday 28 October, Friday 4 November and Saturday 5 November.
