King Tut's Tomb
From religious pieces to ancient curiosities, come see what was in King Tutankhamun's tomb. The Boy King's tomb was discovered almost completely intact by the English archaeologist, Howard Carter, in 1922.
According to the Britannica Concise Encyclopedia, King Tut only ruled for nine years, from the age of 8 - 18. One of the most well-known Egyptian Kings, he was best known for his treasure-filled tomb, filled with thousands of stunning artifacts.
One of the best known artifacts was his golden death mask which covered his wrapped and mummified body. Pure gold, it is now considered a famous relic of the ancient world. King Tut's treasures are on display in the Cairo Museum of Egyptian Antiquities.
