Organiser: Speaker – Clive Barham Carter

Tutankhamen was an ancient Egyptian pharaoh who was the last of his royal family to rule during the
end of the 18th dynasty; he ruled c. 1334 – 1325 BC in the conventional chronology during the New
Kingdom of Egyptian history. His father was the heretical king Akhenaten and his mother was his
father's sister, identified through DNA testing. The 1922 discovery by Howard Carter of Tutankhamun's
nearly intact tomb, funded by Lord Carnarvon, received worldwide press coverage. With over 5000
artefacts, it sparked a renewed public interest in ancient Egypt, for which Tutankhamun's mask, now in
the Egyptian Museum, remains a popular symbol.
