Tutankhamun and the Golden Age of the Pharaohs *** OFFICIAL EXHIBITION DVD ***
The last time Tutankhamun visited the UK was back in the 70’s when the British Museum held the Treasures of Tutankhamun exhibition. The exhibition boasted the museum’s largest attendance ever for a travelling exhibition with over 1.7 million people visiting the show. The exhibition returns to the UK once again this coming November and looks set to take the country by storm, introducing millions more to these wonders of the ancient world.
This official exhibition DVD, Tutankhamun and the Golden Age of the Pharaohs, grants another opportunity to view such treasures time and time again. The DVD is hosted by Omar Sharif, who walks you through the entire exhibition, up close and in great detail. Looking beyond the shimmering gold and beautiful treasures, viewers will come face to face with Tutankhamun’s contemporaries, see and hear about the fascinating times in which the young king lived, and learn how his short reign changed history.
This timeless DVD features National Geographic images and film footage about the golden age of the pharaohs as well as information on cutting-edge research into the life and death of Tutankhamun.
