The art of the Amarna period has been his life-long passion. 
    In recent years, new archaeological material has emerged in Luxor (ancient Thebes) that enriches our knowledge of the life of one of Ancient Egypt's most enigmatic kings, Tutankhamun, revealing the luxurious court in which he lived, his extraordinary building activities, and the circumstances of his death. In his presentation, Dr. Johnson will share some of these new discoveries and analyze for us the light they shed on that golden moment in Egyptian history.
