It’s Tutankhamun’s Birthday!


90 years ago today Tutankhamun was first discovered!

On the 16th of February 1923 archaeologists broke the seal on the tomb of Tutankhamun which brought down an ancient curse on them.

Don’t worry though, most turned out to be okay!

Tutankhamun was one of the most famous Pharaohs of Ancient Egypt and archaeologists spent hundreds of years searching for and excavating the tomb of the Pharaoh.

Whilst the treasures of the tomb have been put on display all over the world, the mummy itself remains in the Valley of the Kings in Egypt!
