As the “last chance to see” Tutankhamun exhibition in London has closed to the public, they’ve released a video of it for those who missed out.
It’s rather glossy, and can almost be looked at as a four and a half minute trailer for a movie rather than a museum exhibition video. But that’s really in keeping with the exhibition, which, wisely I think, didn’t focus on the facts and went for the bling factor of the objects on display.
It’s all showbiz and glamour, and the factual history can come another day.
That said, they say that they’ll explore the artefacts included in detail over the next few days.
This website has been running now for just over a decade, and while advertising revenue contributes to funding the website, but doesn't cover the costs. That is why I have set up a facility with DonorBox where you can contribute to the costs of the website and time invested in writing and research for the news articles.
It's very similar to the way The Guardian and many smaller websites are now seeking to generate an income in the face of rising costs and declining advertising.
Whether its a one-off donation or a regular giver, every additional support goes a long way to covering the running costs of this website, and keeping you regularly topped up doses of Londony news and facts.
