Two ancient Egyptian cities, Thonis-Hercaleion and Canopus, were submerged under the Mediterranean sea for 1000 years. In 1996, following four years of research, a team of marine archaeologists uncovered a trove of astonishing objects, pristinely-preserved thanks to their submersion in the sea. This remarkable exhibition tells the story of these two sunken cities through hundreds of ancient objects, from colossal statues to intricate gold jewellery.
We've teamed up with the British Museum and their partners to offer you an amazing weekend away. The lucky winner will receive:
- Two tickets to see the Sunken Cities: Egypt’s Lost Worlds exhibition
- A delicious afternoon tea for two in the Great Court Restaurant catered by Benugo
- A copy of the accompanying publication from Thames and Hudson, showcasing a spectacular collection of artefacts, coupled with a retelling of the history
- An overnight stay in a deluxe double room with breakfast at The Montague on the Gardens, just moments away from the British Museum
