100 years after archaeologist Howard Carter and his patron, Lord Carnarvon, caught their first glimpse of the fabulous golden treasures of a then little-known Egyptian Pharoah called Tutankhamun visitors are invited to unearth the thrilling stories, myths and controversies surrounding the treasures of Tutankhamun in an exciting exhibition. Using Hull Museums’ collection of exquisitely crafted replicas of treasures found in Tutankhamun’s tomb, handmade by sculptor William Aumonier Junior and his team of skilled artisans for the British Empire Exhibition at Wembley in 1924 and 1925, visitors will be able to follow in the footsteps of those Wembley visitors from 100 years ago when the momentous discovery caused a sensation and ‘Tutmania’ swept the world.
