Donald P. Ryan: “In the Footsteps of Howard Carter in the Valley of the Kings”

The archaeological exploration of ancient Egypt’s royal New Kingdom cemetery,
the Valley of the Kings, offers a rich history of fascinating discoveries made by determined
and often eccentric individuals including Howard Carter, who was well involved in the
Valley decades before he encountered the tomb of Tutankhamun in 1922. In this lecture,
Don Ryan will describe some of his own work in the Valley of the Kings during which he
literally followed in the footsteps of Carter, including the re-excavation of three tombs
discovered by the famed archaeologist early in his career. One tomb is especially
controversial with its occupant identified by some as the female ruler, Hatshepsut, after its
rediscovery by Ryan.
