Community Classroom Presents 'New Discoveries in the Valley of the Kings'
MARCH 2, 2007--In 1922, the excavation of King Tutankhamen's tomb heralded
the beginning of decades of extraordinary archaeological discoveries in
Egypt's Valley of the Kings. The boy-king's final resting place remained
the sole intact tomb identified by the archaeological world until 2006,
however, last year marked the finding of tomb KV 63, which re-ignited
the world's passion for all things ancient Egyptian.
The UW-River Falls Community Classroom session, "New Discoveries
in the Valley of the Kings," highlights the University's recent J-Term
“Journey to Egypt” program's visit to the excavation currently
underway. The presentation takes place March 6 from 7 to 8:30 p.m. at
the River Falls Public Library.
Presenter Professor Steven Derfler is a faculty member of the UWRF art
department. Derfler, who teaches archaeology and ancient history courses,
acted as the winter interim tour director. The professor also has experience
leading other archaeological excavations to the area.
