Most archaeologists, no matter where in the world they work, secretly envy our colleagues who get to work in Egypt. Howard Carter’s discovery of the unplundered tomb of Tutankhamun is the ultimate ‘Wow!’ moment in archaeology and Carter’s breathless reply to Lord Carnarvon’s frantic question “What do you see?!” echoes in the dreams of anyone who has ever participated in an archaeological dig.
Personally, I’ve never had the opportunity to visit Egypt, let alone get to work there. So it’s exciting to see ancient Egypt coming to Columbus!
