Tut’s Sporting Life: Sports & Games in Ancient Egypt

1pm - 3pm

This talk looks at the wide range of sports and games enjoyed by Tutankhamun and his dynasty, from running and swimming to ball games and chariot racing. Jo will also look at the way such activities were undertaken for leisure, as military training and within religious rituals, from the running tracks built beside the pyramids to Egypt’s international sporting events held centuries before the Greek Olympic Games.
