When Carnarvon asked “can you see anything?”, Carter replied with the famous words: “Yes, wonderful things.”

The treasures from the ancient Egyptian 18th Dynasty tomb of Tutankhamun, found in the Valley of the Kings.

Tutankhamun (“Living Image of Amun”), the son of Akhenaten, died after an extremely short reign ca. 1323 BC, aged ca. 18 years old. The discovery of Tutankhamun’s nearly intact tomb in 1922 by Howard Carter received extensive worldwide media coverage. The burial mask of Tutankhamun remains a popular symbol associated with Egypt, and the artifacts from the tomb have toured the world.
