Discovering Tut: the Saga continues
By- A.R. Williams
Introduction of the lesson- Discovering Tut: the Saga continues
Egypt was once a cradle of civilization. The emperors of the country were better known as Pharaohs. They had a vast empire and enormous gold. They believed in life after death. So, they buried the kings in tombs as mummies. They put beside the dead a lot of treasure and even the things of everyday need. These were meant for use in the next life. These tombs were built up to 26 ft below, and the mummy was put in a gold case. Tut was the last of a ruling dynasty. He died young, only nine years after occupying the throne. His tomb was discovered and investigated in 1922 by a British archaeologist, Caner. He had trouble in taking the mummy out of the coffin of solid gold. The resins had hardened. The body was cut and removed in parts. It was reassembled, put in a case and put back at its resting place. But it was taken out again for CT scan to solve the mystery of how and at what age he had died. But thankfully, the body suffered no further harm.
