Forty Fads I’d Like To See Again
Egypt-mania has had a couple of good runs in the last century or so. The first was in the twenties just after the discovery of King Tut’s tomb.

A few more tours of different objects have since traveled the globe (including one that wrapped up in Seattle earlier this year).
