Tutankhamun: the Pharaoh behind the Tomb
This course will appeal to those with an interest in Archaeology, Ancient History, History and Art History
The discovery of Tutankhamun’s tomb and the iconic treasures within may be world-famous, but how much do you know about the man behind the tomb? This course will explore the life of the prince then pharaoh Tutankhamun; his statuary, reliefs, building work and other achievements of his short life. It will be impossible to ignore his death, tomb and funerary equipment but the focus of this course will be on a historical figure rather than the discovery of a famous tomb.
