The mask of Tutankhamun is arguably the most iconic image associated with ancient Egypt. This lecture explores the impact of the discovery of the tomb of Tutankhamun on understandings of ancient Egypt, the exponential growth of the fame of the boy king through the 20th and into the 21st centuries, and discusses what Tutankhamun means to us today.
