“If the government will ask me again, I will not accept this job,” Mr. Hawass said in a telephone interview.
He also posted on his blog a list of some two dozen sites that have been looted or vandalized since the beginning of the uprising that led to the fall of Hosni Mubarak. Among them were the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s storerooms at its excavation site in Dahshur, south of Cairo, which he said were attacked twice.In recent weeks, Mr. Hawass has been the target of criticism ranging from charges of corruption to complaints that he is a publicity seeker. He was closely associated with Mr. Mubarak, who promoted him to a cabinet position during his last days in power.
The Son of the Sun, Tutankhamun (1334−1325 BCE) was a god in his own time; but he was also a mortal on earth. While the contents of his tomb tell us a great deal about his divine status, what do they tell us about his life and death his human side? What did he really look like? Who were his parents? How did he die, and how old was he? Who controlled him while he was on the throne? Did he have any children? What role did his widow Ankhesenamun attempt to play in the selection of the next king? What was his relationship with his successor, the aged Aye. Did Aye switch tombs with him? Why was his tomb equipment so richly provided, including personal gifts donated by important officials and courtiers; and where did it all come from? The new traveling Tutankhamun exhibitions present an occasion to reexamine some of these issues, even though many of them are not yet completely resolved.

James K. Hoffmeier
Trinity International University
This lecture will include a report on Hoffmeier’s excavations at Tell el-Borg and geological work in Sinai. Further, satellite imagery will also be used to reconstruct the ancient environment on Egypt’s eastern frontier, the very area where the Bible reports the exodus to have occurred.
James K. Hoffmeier, Professor of Near Eastern Archaeology at Trinity International University, Divinity School (Deerfield, IL), was born in Egypt where he lived until age 16. Growing up in the Middle East laid an important foundation for his future as an archaeologist. He has been engaged in fieldwork and research in Egypt on a regular basis since 1975.
Dr. Hoffmeier has authored and edited a number of books, including “Sacred” in the Vocabulary of Ancient Egypt (Orbis Biblicus et Orientalis; Freiburg University Press, 1985), Israel in Egypt: Evidence for the Authenticity of the Exodus Tradition (Oxford University Press, 1997 & 1999),
