Exhibition running from 3rd June to 30th October at the Château de Châteaubriant
After meeting with a rapturous reception in 2015, the Château de Châteaubriant is delighted to announce the extension of the exhibition 'Egypt in the age of the Pharaohs' Featuring over a hundred objects from the collections of the Musée Dobrée, alongside artefacts on loan from the Musée du Louvre, this show is the perfect opportunity to (re)discover Ancient Egyptian civilization. The exhibition focuses on the work of Egyptologist Frédéric Cailliaud, daily life in the time of the Pharaohs (crafts and commerce) and ancient Egyptian funerary rites (the gods, mummification and sarcophagi).

In 19th century Egypt, France and Britain were engaged in a fierce rivalry. Both nations wanted to recover as many ancient artefacts as possible, and claim the glory for new discoveries. Private collectors were also involved in the chase, always on the hunt for new items. Put yourself in the shoes of these pioneering Egyptologists and learn more about the thrills and spills of archaeological exploration! A fun, educational team game.
