    1922 - 2023: 100 YEARS SINCE THE DISCOVERY OF THE TOMB OF THE FAMOUS PHARAOH

    November 4th, 1922, Luxor. After five years of unsuccessful excavations in the Valley of the Kings, the British archaeologist Howard Carter made an incredible discovery, which remains to this day, unprecedented! Lit by the light of his candle, he discovered the impressive golden tomb of the Pharaoh Tutankhamun, who died more than 3000 years ago, surrounded by all his treasures.

    TUTANKMANUN - PHARAOH OF A DYNASTY

    Tutankhamun ascended to the throne in 1332 BC. at the age of 9 as one of the last kings of the 18th Dynasty. His father was the heretical king Akhenaten. The most important achievement of his reign was the rejection of his father's radical religious reforms, which had destabilized the whole country. According to the latest studies, the young king suffered from serious illnesses. He passed away after nine years on the throne and his death remains a mystery to this day.

    HIS TOMB AND ITS TREASURES: OVER 1000 OBJECTS TO DISCOVER

    The Metropolitan Museum sent Harry Burton to be the excavation photographer - he was 'Carters eye and memory'. With his enormous camera and cumbersome negative plates, he tirelessly surveyed the site of the discovery. He set up his laboratory in the tomb of Sethos II and improvised a darkroom in the neighboring tomb KV 55. Every step of the excavation work was documented in photographs, down to the smallest detail. A total of 2,800 large-format glass negatives were printed, listing all finds and their location in the tomb.

    The gigantic Tutankhamun exhibition houses over 1,000 exquisite, painstakingly, and scientifically produced crafted replicas and an impressive abundance of art from ancient Egypt. Discover its treasures, tomb, golden mask, and more before they're gone!
