Where the Journey Began
Dr Wayne French
Founder of the Tutankhamun Roadshow.
Throughout my teen years, I was fascinated by the stories that came from ancient history. I grew up being inspired by the amazing lives, accomplishments and stories of Alexander the Great and Julius Caesar.
In the late 1970’s I was given my first artefacts from the Middle East by historian David Currie—these were three bricks dating back to 605BC from Babylon, Iraq, with King Nebuchadnezzar’s name stamped on them—they were genuine pieces, not mere copies. These three bricks are still in my collection, and you can see them in the ‘Scroll Room’ on the Tutankhamun Roadshow.
