Ancient Egypt: The Greatest Discoveries You've Probably Never Heard Of
A Lecture by Renowned Egyptologist Donald P. Ryan, Ph.D.
Monday, March 28, 7:00pm
Montana Theatre, PARTV Center - University of Montana
Free and open to the public
Donald P. Ryan, Ph.D. is an archaeologist and Faculty Fellow in the Division of Humanities at Pacific Lutheran University in Tacoma, Washington.
Most people are familiar with the Tomb of Tutankhamun, the Great Pyramid, the Rosetta Stone, and a handful of other iconic symbols of Egypt's ancient past. But 200 years of exploration have revealed much more that is well-deserving of broader attention. Dr. Ryan will share some of the amazing archaeological discoveries in Egypt that have mostly escaped public notice. He will also provide an update of his own recent work in the Valley of the Kings.
For several years Ryan worked closely with world-renowned Norwegian explorer, archaeologist and writer, the late Thor Heyerdahl. Ryan is also a Research Associate at the Kon-Tiki Museum in Oslo, Norway and a Fellow of both The Explorers Club and The Royal Geographical Society.
