Ancient Egypt Rises From the Sea at SLAM’s “Sunken Cities”

    “Sunken Cities: Egypt’s Lost Worlds” at the Saint Louis Art Museum features over 250 pieces excavated from beneath the Mediterranean Sea, offering a rare glimpse into life in ancient Egypt. The relics originate from the lost cities of Thonis-Heracleion and Canopus and rediscovered portions of Alexandria. Together they combine to reveal both ancient mysteries and a portrait of everyday life during the times of Helen of Troy and Alexander the Great. The exhibit at the Saint Louis Art Museum is the first in the United States and it is co-curated by Frank Goddio, president of the European Institute for Underwater Archaeology and Lisa Çakmak, associate curator of ancient art at SLAM. It will run from March 25 through September 9, 2018.
