EGYPT'S LOST CITIES EXHIBIT
Time may have eroded the memory of a civilization but not the mystery of what was. Long ago, two bustling cities in ancient Egypt were known throughout the world as cultural centers of power, of wealth, of trade, and novel artistry. One day as the Mediterranean sun beat down on the bay of Aboukir, the cities slipped into the sea without a whisper of wind, buried for centuries. Who wouldn’t dream of unearthing lost antiquities from a forgotten civilization, sunken into obscurity? Determined to recover the cities that vanished, Franck Goddio, a mathematician by trade and underwater archeologist at heart, delivered the discovery of a millennium for he located not a shipwreck but an entire civilization. Experience this story in Egypt’s Lost Cities at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library and Museum. Open 10 a.m. - 5 p.m. seven days a week (closed New Year's Day, Thanksgiving Day, and Christmas Day) at The Reagan Library & Museum, 40 Presidential Drive, Simi Valley. Info/Tix: click here
