I have pretty much been in love with anything Ancient Egyptian my whole life! mInnermost funerary coffin of King Tut Ankh Amon, Museum of Egyptian Antiquities ~ Tahrir Square, al-Qāhira (Cairo), Egypt.
Tutankhamun was an Egyptian pharaoh of the dynasty (ruled ca. 1332 BC – 1323 BC in the conventional chronology), during the period of Egyptian history known as the New Kingdom. He is popularly referred to as King Tut.
The exhibition THE DISCOVERY OF KING TUT offers you a once-in-a-lifetime insight into the archaeology of ancient Egypt. Go on a fantastical voyage and experience the burial chambers and treasures of the King exactly as they were discovered in 1922 by Howard Carter.
