Sunken cities: Egypt’s lost worlds
Another fascinating exhibition hosted at The British Museum is “Sunken cities: Egypt’s lost worlds.” Submerged under the sea for over a thousand years and only just recently discovered, two lost cities of ancient Egypt lay preserved on the sea floor and their story is being told. Discover the remarkable relationship between the major ancient civilisations of Egypt and Greece, unveiled in this monumental new exhibition which runs from 19th May to 27th November.
