Don't Panic! Celebrating the our 42nd episode with a brief nod to the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy by the uncanny Douglas Adams, the Ancient Art Podcast continues to explore the Top 10 Ancient Egyptian Myths & Misconceptions with "The 'Boy King' Tutankhamun." Arguably the most famous and studied figure from Ancient Egypt, Tutankhamun is shrouded in mystery. Who was this enigmatic ruler behind all the myth and mysteries? Who were his parents? What does his reign tell us about the cultural, religious, and political climate of Ancient Egypt during the dusk of the Amarna Period? What's the real truth behind the "Mummy's Curse?" Can we learn any secrets from his short life and the truth behind his untimely death? Can this episode finally put the nail in Tut's coffin? So long, Tut, and thanks for all the fish.
