At a Glance

A hundred years after one of the most amazing archeological finds known to humanity, could there be more clues yet to be uncovered about the past life of Egyptian Pharaoh Tutankhamun? Join Ancient Civilization Expert and National Geographic Photographer, Kenneth Garrett, as he delves into the advanced technology surrounding the tomb of King Tut. From CT scans of Tut’s mummy to DNA studies of his family tree, along with ground-penetrating radar, you’ll explore King Tut’s life, death, and burial chamber while learning about the most recent discoveries. This lecture coincides with the premiere of a new National Geographic exhibit called “Beyond King Tut” premiering in Boston, Mass. on July 8th, and running through October 30th, 2022.
