Egypt: The Time of Pharaohs

Royal British Columbia Museum

May 18 to December 31, 2018  

 

Our collective fascination with Egypt may centre on the pyramids, intricate death rituals and glittering treasures of the Pharaohs, but much of the rest of ancient Egyptian life has remained shrouded in mystery. Now, recent advances in archaeology have uncovered information about how the everyday Egyptian lived.   

This is the first time a North American audience will be able to see this staggering exhibition, featuring priceless ancient original artifacts like a monumental bust of the female Pharaoh Hatshepsut, the box coffin of Nakht and an ornate gold and garnet necklace from the Ptolemaic period. 

With more than 300 original artifacts, some up to 4,500 years old, this exhibition will captivate and transport visitors back to a time when civilization first sprang along the Nile, pyramids dotted the skyline and people believed gods walked among them. Don't miss out - get your tickets today!
