Tutankhamun audio tours (
An article about the audio tour that accompanies the Tutankhamun exhibition. "The Tut audio tour includes brief but informative interviews with Zahi Hawass, the secretarygeneral of Egypt’s Supreme Council of Antiquities, as well as commentary by David Silverman, the national exhibit curator. But the real star, after Tut himself, is Sharif. Much of the information from the audio tour also is contained on interpretive signs accompanying the artifacts. But reading the dry facts can’t compare to listening to Sharif, who comes across like a beloved uncle from Cairo, one who knows his way around a bazaar, desert or royal tomb." The article also looks at audio tours from other exibitions. See the above page for the full story.
