From April 19th to July 29th, 2012 one could gaze at a little bit of “Ancient Egypt in Brunswieck”. Set up by the Brunswieck Herzog Anton Ulrich-Museum a small but nice special exhibition could be marvelled at displayed at the bower of the Dankwarderode castle with almost 120 mostly small formated ancient egyptian objects.
The statue of Pharao Philippos III. Arrhidaious (323 – 317 A.D) could be named as the highlight of the exhibition. The statue is known around the world as the only one marked with hieroglyphics of Alexander the Great’s half brother.
