Archaeologists Find Fascinating Items Inside King Tut’s Tomb

The Egyptian history is something that never stops fascinating us, even those who are not interested in history. It’s because the culture, art, myths and everything that come from Egyptian history is THAT mind blowing.

King Tutankhamun’s story is one that is popular for the many interesting facts about it. He was the last of his royal family and became king at an age as young as nine. However, his reign also ended pretty soon with his demise at a younger age. Despite all these, he is way more popular than a lot of other rulers from the Egyptian kingdom because it took long to discover his crypt and its invaluable artifacts.

About 5000 objects were found from King Tut’s tomb in 1922 by archaeologist Howard Carter. These included royal garments, jars of beer, wine, canopic jars with Tut’s organs, scarab jewelry, statues of gods, and even his two stillborn daughters.
