Sir John Soane’s Museum is excited to formally announce the next exhibition about the excavation and acquisition of Soane's greatest treasure: the alabaster sarcophagus of Seti I. Discovered 200 years ago in 1817 by the enterprising Italian Egyptologist, Giovanni Batista Belzoni, the sarcophagus was Soane’s most expensive purchase and he held a three-day party in 1825 to celebrate its arrival in his London townhouse.
The exhibition will run from 11 October until 14 April 2018. The events team has already received bookings from groups interested in early-19th-century Egyptology, so do get in touch to book your private event in conjunction with this landmark exhibition!
