The Golden Pharoah Eileen Goulding Wednesday 15 January 2020

Tutankamun came to the throne as a young boy of eight years old and doed nine years later, too young to have acheived much in his short life. Now he is the most famous pharoah, known for his incredible treasures which were buried with him, which earned him the title 'The Golden Pharoah'. This lecture introduces the 'boy king' and his family and examines his family, the discovery of his tomb and wonderful things found.

Eileen Goulding is an egyptologist, author and lecturer who specialises in ancient Egypt.
