Tutankhamun's Mummy

The tomb of the boy King Tutankhamun is possibly the most famous because of its well-known discovery by the British archaeologist, Howard Carter.  The tomb was doubly important because it let archaeologists record what an Egyptian pharaoh’s tomb actually looked like, thus allowing them to learn much more about Ancient Egypt.  Unlike earlier tombs belonging to other pharaohs, Carter’s discovery had not been vandalized and looted by grave robbers and private collectors.  This meant the tomb’s vast hoard of artifacts and treasure, intended to accompany the young king into the afterlife, revealed an astounding amount of detail about his all-too short life and the society he lived in.

Tutankhamun ruled Egypt for just 10 years until his death at the age of 19, about 1324 B.C.E.  He remained barely known to the modern world until 1922, when Howard Carter chiseled his way through a doorway and entered the royal tomb, which had remained intact for over 3,200 years!

This coming year marks the centenary of the tomb’s discovery and introduces another chapter in King & Country’s ‘Ancient Egypt’ series…

The welcome return of an Ancient Egyptian set complete with the bandaged body of the young king and the beautifully painted and decorated outer coffins.

To enhance the display of any our Ancient Egypt series, especially these two ‘Tutankhamun’ sets, King & Country has produced a unique and useful, full-colour ‘backdrop’ accessory piece… FREE-OF-CHARGE!  Depicting scenes from life in the time of the Pharohs the full colour card can be folded neatly into a rectangular, open box-shape that represents a typical burial chamber of that era.  Any of our Ancient Egyptian figures, but especially the two sets depicting the discovery of Tutankhamun’s tomb, will work in this attractive setting.  Adding some of our sturdy Egyptian Stone Blocks AE078 makes the scene even better!

So, remember each of these two ‘Tutankhamun’ sets will be accompanied by one of these special ‘Tomb Backdrops’… with our compliments!
