More about Tutankhamun visit to London UK (
"Tutankhamun And The Golden Age Of The Pharaohs will open in a new, 60,000 sq ft exhibition centre at O2, the £500 million venue inside what used to be the Millennium Dome, in November. It will showcase 130 Egyptian treasures, all between 3,000 and 3,500 years old and including 50 from the tomb of Tutankhamun.
There had been fears the exhibition would be canned after the Greenwich site lost out to Manchester in the race for the first supercasino. But Anschutz Entertainment Group, the company behind the O2, confirmed today that it is pressing ahead with the display."
See the above page for full details.

In addition, thanks very much to Bob Partridge (Editor "Ancient Egypt" magazine) for the information that there is a meeting planned in London for March 12th 2007. This will be a formal Press Briefing to officially 'unveil' the detailed plans for the exhibition. Attendees are expected to include the Egyptian Ambassador and some special invited guests and representatives from the Egyptian S.C.A..
