#Egypt The #Tomb of #Tutankhamun

#Tutankhamun was an #Egyptian #Pharaoh ruling from approximately 1341 BC to 1323 BC. The boy-king was only eight years old when he became Pharaoh. Howard Carter, a British #Egyptologist, had found clues to the existence of the Pharaoh, but the location of his tomb was unknown because of the scarcity of records of any type on Tutankhamun. Carter searched in vain for many months for the tomb, known to be located somewhere in the #Valley of the #Kings. Carter’s financing was all but gone, and was given only one more season to find the boy-king’s burial place.

On November 4, 1922, Carter found the steps leading to Tutankhamun’s tomb. He notified his financier to hurry to the site, and on November 26th they breached the tomb’s doorway. Inside laid one of the most complete, intact resting places of a Pharaoh, largely undisturbed since its sealing in 1323 BC. Carter and “King Tut” became instant celebrities the world over.
Visiting the Cairo Museum is awe inspiring. Egypt is enormously exciting. Worth every single minute one spends there.
