At the time of the world fair of Paris, in 1900, two (private) presentations were organised below ground: a mining exhibition and a second one dedicated to underground archaeology, under the title "the underworld". Two men were behind these events: the engineer Louis de Launay and sculptor orientalist Augustus Rivière. De Launay was chosen to host these events, the site of the ancient quarries of the city of Paris, at the Trocadero.
Among the ancient reconstitutions was the mastaba of Ty, which had been discovered some decades earlier by Augustus Mariette.
