King Tutankhamun: Ancient Egypt Unveiled
One of the most recognizable symbols of Ancient Egypt, the golden mask of King Tutankhamun, or the Boy Pharaoah, still transfixes modern eyes some nine decades after it was discovered among a literal treasure trove of antiquities at a site in the Valley of the Kings. Anointed ruler of Egypt at the age of 9 over 3,300 years ago, and worshipped as a god while he still lived, Tutankhamun, or Tut, died while still a teen, and was buried in a tomb that contained the most remarkable find in the history of Egyptology — a nearly intact tomb laden with gold, jewels, and precious artifacts. This year, King Tut’s riches and discoveries from his tomb are on tour around the world
