The BP exhibition
Sunken cities: Egypt’s lost worlds
19 May – 27 November 2016
Supported by BP

Submerged under the sea for over a thousand years, two lost cities of ancient Egypt were recently rediscovered. Their story is told for the first time in this blockbuster exhibition at the British Museum.

Vanished beneath the waters of the Mediterranean, the lost cities of Thonis-Heracleion and Canopus lay at the mouth of the Nile. Their amazing rediscovery is transforming our understanding of the deep connections between the great ancient civilisations of Egypt and Greece.

Over the last 20 years, world-renowned archaeologist Franck Goddio and his team have excavated spectacular underwater discoveries using the latest technologies. They will be seen alongside fascinating objects from major Egyptian museums for the first time in the UK. Preserved and buried under the sea for over a thousand years, the stunning objects in the exhibition range from magnificent colossal statues to intricate gold jewellery. Journey through centuries of encounters between two celebrated cultures, meeting iconic historical figures such as Alexander the Great, Cleopatra and Hadrian.

Discover the remarkable relationship between the major ancient civilisations of Egypt and Greece in this monumental new exhibition.

Organised with the Hilti Foundation and the Institut Européen d’Archéologie Sous-Marine.
