The Baltimore Luxor Alexandria Sister City Committee (Baltimore Sister Cities) is celebrating the 100th Anniversary of the discovery of tomb of King Tutankhamen and the 200th anniversary of the translation of the Rosetta Stone.
The Baltimore Luxor Alexandria Sister City Committee and Enoch Pratt Library are hosting a free, family-friendly event for the community.
Anthony T. Browder, who has devoted 30 years to researching ancient Egyptian history, science, and culture, will talk about our fascination with King Tut and will speak live via Zoom with the man whose father was the first to find the tomb back in 1922. Enoch Pratt librarian Tyler Williams will share more about how and why the pyramids were built. Visitors of all ages can write their names in hieroglyphs and modern Arabic, play ancient Egyptian games, decorate crowns and necklaces, and roll a papyrus scroll. There will be a scavenger hunt with prizes, authentic Egyptian treats crafted by Koshery Corner Food Truck, and fun activities for the whole family.
Enoch Pratt Free Library – 400 Cathedral Street Baltimore, Md
November 12, 2022 from 1:00 – 4:00 p.m.
