EVENT STARTS: 9:00AM
EVENT ENDS: 5:00PM
Exactly one hundred years ago, archaeologist Howard Carter discovered King Tut's tomb and set off a media frenzy that piqued world-wide interest in Egyptology. Join us as we navigate pyramids, uncover hidden artifacts, and decipher ancient texts while searching for the lost tomb of Egypt's most consequential pharaoh—Geopatra, Queen of the Nile. Come as a 1922 tomb raider, archaeologist, or your favorite ancient Egyptian and explore Rome, Georgia as it transforms into the Valley of Kings!
