Exhibitions: ‘Ramses And The Gold Of The Pharaohs’

FRANCE 24 (April 7, 2023) – As the “Ramses and the Gold of the Pharaohs” exhibition opens in Paris, we bring you a special show dedicated to the celebrated king who ruled the Egyptian empire over 3,000 years ago. The exhibition’s centrepiece is the pharaoh’s sarcophagus, which is on special loan to France.

It’s a gesture of recognition from Egyptian authorities after French scientists saved the mummy of Ramses II from a devastating fungus in 1976. Our Culture Editor Eve Jackson went to check out the once-in-a-lifetime show, while Lyana Saleh of FRANCE 24’s Arabic channel spoke with renowned Egyptian archaeologist Zahi Hawass about the fight to repatriate Egypt’s ancient artefacts.
