King Tutankhamun died in 1323 BC at the age of 20. Because he died suddenly, the king’s tomb was not carefully prepared. It is only 3.68 m high, 7.68 m wide and 30.79 m long. Photo: Seethru.

Archaeologist Howard Carter discovered the tomb in 1922 in the Valley of the Kings, Egypt. It is considered the most intact royal tomb ever found, providing scientists with information about the king’s physical life. Photo: Wikimedia Commons.

It took Howard Carter 10 years to clean and catalog all the wealth stored in the tomb. The most notable artifact is a gold coffin, containing many layers of small coffins with one layer made entirely of solid gold. Photo: Asaf Braverman /flickr.
