Over a decade ago, a treasure trove of Egyptian artefacts were found submerged in the Nile Delta. Finally, the world will get a chance to see these treasures as the exhibit inauguration is set to take place on Thursday at the British Museum.
The world waits in anticipation to get their first glimpse of a treasure trove of ancient Egyptian artefacts that were discovered by Franck Goddio while excavating an underwater area by the Nile Delta. After years of preparation, the sunken treasures will appear on display at the British Museum on Thursday.
Osiris, Egypt’s Sunken Mysteries exhibit is set to launch on Thursday and will be on display for a six-month run. Planning to attend the inauguration, Antiquities Minister Khaled Al Anany arrived in London on Tuesday. This marks the first time the artefacts will be seen by the public since the ancient days. Leading up to the inauguration, a series of photos were released that are absolutely breathtaking. To give you an idea of what we mean, we decided to compile our seven favourite images floating around the Internet this week that have gotten fans of Ancient Egypt super excited.
