Tutankhamun: from Zero to Hero

Egyptian drawings on stone

Jump to

This lecture is presented by Dr. Aidan Dodson, honorary professor of Egyptology at the University of Bristol.

Hear how Tutankhamun came to be written out of history soon after his death, how the earliest Egyptologists began to piece together evidence for his existence, and some of their theories as to his identity and place in events. This lecture will also trace the events that led up to the discovery of his tomb in 1922, catapulting the king from obscurity to universal fame.
