Walk – and Be Buried – Like an Egyptian

ID : 82253   
« back to classes page
King Tut died at the age of nineteen after ruling for ten years. His reign was of little importance, but he became one of the most famous of the pharaohs thirty-two centuries after his death when archaeologist Howard Carter discovered his intact tomb in 1922. Although small, the tomb was filled with treasure, including his intact burial mask, coffins and sarcophagus, which expanded the knowledge Egyptologists gained about customes and burial practices. How did Carter find the tomb? Why were there similarities between the burials of King Tut and Jesus? Did Egyptians really mummify their pets? What's the connection between King Tut and Downtown Abbey? (It's not the Egyptian-motif wallpaper.) Join us as we unwrap the answers to all these questions.
