Children's University: Child-King of Egypt - Tutankhamun and his golden treasures
A cooperative event with the Elmshorn Family Education Centre. For children aged 8-12 years.
October 19, 2021
Tutankhamun was only eight years old when he became king of Egypt. Just ten years later, the young pharaoh died and was buried with magnificent grave goods in the "Valley of the Kings". Tutankhamun remained forgotten for over 3000 years - until the English archaeologist Howard Carter discovered his tomb and the golden treasures in 1922. We want to experience this "great moment of archaeology" together.
What finds was Howard Carter able to make in the tomb of Tutankhamun? And what do these finds tell us about the life of the young king? Did the "curse of the pharaoh" really exist? The lecture of Egyptologist Susanne Martinssen-von Falck answers all these questions and takes you for an afternoon to Egypt - the mysterious land on the Nile!
