13. But when we came to a golden shrine with doors closed and sealed, we realized that we were to witness a spectacle such as no other man in our time had been privileged to see. With intense excitement, I went forward and unbolted the inner door. They slowly swing open and there, filling the entire area within, stood an immense yellow quartzite sarcophagus. In a dead silence the huge lid weighing over a ton and a quarter was raised from its bed. Light shone into the sarcophagus. A gasp of wonderment escaped our lips, so gorgeous was the sight that met our eyes. A golden effigy of the young king of magnificent workmanship filled the whole of the interior, enclosing the model remains of young king Tutankhamun. Recording found at: 14. 15. 16. 17. 18. One of two statues of King Tut thatwere at both sides of the entrance. A golden bracelet found on the mummy. It is made of the same material as his death mask andin the center is a large scarabmade of Lapis Lazuli. A double perfume box made of god and silver pedestal. A golden throne.The wooden frames arewrapped in gold andsilver.The picture on the throne shows QueenAnkhesenamun anointing King Tut. 19. 20. 21.

  • The x-ray of King Tuts head showed a thickening of bone.Which would only have happened if there was a build-up of blood. Scientists suggest that he was left bleeding for a while before he actually died.


  • Scientists found a lump at the back of his head.They think it might be caused by a brain tumor.


  • King Tuts wife sent a message to the Syrian monarch telling him to tell one of his sons to marry her after her husband dies.Why did she all of a sudden want someone else to marry her?Did she know that Tut was going to die?Maybe she was part of the murder of King Tut.


  • Some people think that he might have been murdered by an official because only someone with great importance could get close enough to actually kill him.
