Dr Zahi Hawass in Manchester this February

Dr Zahi Hawass in Manchester this February

Perhaps the most famous archaeologist in the world Dr Zahi Hawass, Secretary General of the Egyptian Supreme Council of Antiquities and Vice-Culture Minister for Egypt is coming to Manchester.

Renowned for his deep knowledge of Egyptology – even perhaps for his floppy Indiana Jones hat - Dr Hawass will be at the Bridgewater Hall on Friday, 4 February 2011, to give a public multimedia lecture lasting 90 minutes.

Last time he was in the UK in 2008, Dr Hawass gave a sell-out speech in front of 2,300 visitors at the IndigO Theatre in London’s O2 Arena.

In Manchester Dr Hawass will discuss Egypt’s most famous pharaoh, Tutankhamun, the search for the tomb of Queen Nefertiti, new insights on the tombs in the Valley of the Kings and the exciting research into the tombs of Cleopatra and Mark Anthony.

He will also draw on biographical anecdotes and personal experiences from his many years of scientific activity, including his current excavations at Giza and latest project – revealing the secrets of the mummy of Ramesses III.

Following his lecture, there will be a book signing of Dr Hawass’ books, ‘Inside the Egyptian Museum,’ ‘A Secret Voyage’ and his long-awaited new children’s book ‘King Tut and I.’

The lecture is presented by Semmel Concerts (promoter of the exhibition “Tutankhamun – His Tomb and His Treasures” in Manchester) in conjunction with The Manchester Ancient Egypt Society.

I was only thinking this weekend that it had been nearly a whole week since ManCon carried a review relating to “Tutankhamun – His Tomb and His Treasures” and was waiting for another one. Anyway - sure enough here is another one - just in case we missed the other two. I really should go.

The real Howard Carter. This is technically about a man in a hat coming to visit this fair city....albeit related to the Egypt exhibition. Howard One give it a go, it's good. Fun and informative, oh damn I've gone and plugged it again.
