Explore the Ancient World at the UCC Library

For the next several weeks the UCC library will be stepping back in time to Ancient Egypt, Greece, and Rome. (But don't worry, we'll still have printing and Wi-Fi available)

Each week will bring a different ancient figure to our Smarty Awards (scroll down to see this week's)

Be sure to check out our display covering ancient history, modern novels set in the ancient world, and regional cooking.

Learn how you, as a student, can explore the ancient world and beyond using our databases.

Finally, on May 16th at 3pm, we will be having our Ancient World Jeopardy game. Register here

  • Hint 1: A young pharaoh who ruled Egypt for nine years.
  • Hint 2: His tomb was discovered in 1922 in the Valley of the Kings. His tomb was so well preserved that he became the most well known Egyptian pharaoh. 
  • Hint 3: After his mysterious death, his successors attempted to wipe out the legacy of his reign.
