Sunken Cities, Egypt's Lost Worlds

Exhibition opening at the British Museum in London

The exhibition "Sunken Cities, Egypt's Lost Worlds" with discoveries from our underwater archaeological expeditions off the coast of Egypt is on display at the British Museum in London from 19 May - 27 November 2016. It is the first large-scale exhibition of underwater archaeology at the museum. The show enables us to share with the UK public the results of years of work at the sunken cities and our fascination for ancient worlds and civilizations. Placing our discoveries alongside selected masterpieces from the collections of Egyptian Museums, complemented by important objects from the British Museum, the exhibition presents unique insights into a fascinating period in history during which Egyptians and Greeks encountered each other on the shores of the Mediterranean.
