Tutankhamun and the Golden Age of the Pharaohs Previous Broadcasts

KQED Plus: Tue, Jul 12, 2011 -- 10:00 PM

Since the discovery of his treasure-filled tomb in 1922, King Tutankhamun has captured the imaginations of people around the world. This Emmy-nominated program highlights the celebrated exhibit of Tutankhamun artifacts - the most impressive collection ever assembled outside of Egypt - at the Museum of Art in Fort Lauderdale. These objects - ranging from everyday housewares to ornate gold crowns - offer a compelling portrait of the tumultuous times of Tutankhamun and his fabled family. A special exhibition section explores the mystery of Tutankhamun's death (theories range from murder to a tragic hunting accident) through CT scans performed on the young pharaoh's mummified remains. Additionally, a realistic, life-sized bust created by forensic specialists allows visitors to gaze into ancient monarch's face.
