Description

On view through January 27, 2019 during regular library hours

Discover how Egypt has captivated the Western imagination from the nineteenth century until today. From Napoleon’s conquest of Africa to the discovery of King Tut’s Tomb in the 1920s, Egyptomania swept America and Europe and came to symbolize the exotic, romantic, and mysterious. Featuring materials from Pequot Library’s Special Collections, including late 19th century photographs of Egypt and archeological surveys, this exhibit explores the far-reaching influence of Egypt on Western culture.
