89 Years Ago

On February 16th in 1923, Howard Carter, an English archaeologist entered the tomb of King Tutankhamen (know to most as King Tut). Inside the tomb was a coffin made of gold containing the mummified body of King Tut. Despite the rumors that a curse would betide anyone who disturbed the tomb, all the treasure found inside were cataloged and removed. These treasures can been seen in the traveling exhibit, "Treasure of Tutankhamen".
