The Grand Palais is a large glass exhibition hall that was built for the Paris Exhibition of 1900. During the time I was in Paris, a traveling exhibition of “Egypt’s Sunken Treasures” was featured. Apparently, this exhibit was a biggie and received press in all of the papers, television shows, and in every subway station. The exhibit features newly found sunken treasures that retrace once more the history of Egypt from the last Pharaohs to Alexander the Great, from the Hellenic conquests to the Roman Empire, and from the Christian era to the rise of Islam.
