“Tutankhamun’s Unseen Treasures: The Golden Appliqués” Is the title under which a selection of objects from the tomb of Tutankhamun, which have been restored and studied over the past years through a German-Egyptian co-operation project, will be displayed at the Egyptian Museum in Tahrir Cairo. The objects are being shown to the public for the first time. The exhibition runs from 16 November to 31 December 2017.
The German-Egyptian co-operation project is field-directed by Christian Eckmann and Katja Broschat from the Römisch-Germanisches Zentralmuseum Mainz. The project was carried out under the umbrella of the German Archaeological Institute Cairo, in co-operation with Römisch-Germanisches Zentralmuseum Mainz and Eberhard Karls University, Tübingen, and supported by the German Foreign Office and the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft.
The opening ceremony for “Tutankhamun’s Unseen Treasures” will commemorate the 115th anniversary of the opening of the Egyptian Museum Cairo and the 60th anniversary of re-opening the German Archaeological Institute Cairo on 15 November 1957.
