A Historic Discovery


Ancient Egypt had many rulers. Its youngest was King Tutankhamen. He became king when he was 9 years old. He died 10 years later. His mummy was placed in a tomb. It was hidden for thousands of years.

King Tut’s Treasures

In 1891, Howard Carter (above, left) went to Egypt. He was looking for King Tut’s tomb. He finally found it in 1922. There were great treasures inside. These included furniture, chariots, and statues. Now they will be shown at the Grand Egyptian Museum. The museum is in Egypt. It is set to open this year.
