Artefacts From King Tut's Tomb on Tour in USA and Europe

Artifacts from King Tut's tomb are coming to LA

AP | November 29, 2017
Artifacts from King Tut's tomb are going on tour next year to mark the upcoming 100th anniversary of the discovery of the Egyptian pharaoh's resting place.

The California Science Center says the exhibit, "KING TUT: Treasures of the Golden Pharaoh," will be on view at the Los Angeles museum for 10 months before heading to Europe in January 2019 as part of a 10-city international tour.

The museum says the exhibition represents the largest collection of artifacts and gold from Tutankhamun's tomb ever to go on public display outside of Egypt. It says 40 percent of the items are leaving Egypt for the first and last time before going on permanent display at a new museum being built near the Giza Pyramids in Egypt.

King Tut's tomb was discovered in 1922, more than 3,000 years after his death.

No Tutankhamun junket is complete without some input from the hatted one.

"This new visual and sensory experience brings his story to life with objects that have never been displayed outside of Egypt, illustrating its incredible history and impact for an international audience like never before," said esteemed archaeologist Zahi Hawass. "KING TUT: Treasures of the Golden Pharaoh is a monumental achievement for the preservation of ancient Egyptian history and King Tutankhamun's place in it – his legacy will live forever within the Grand Egyptian Museum as well as in the hearts of people all over the world."

This, and more blurb about the tour......https://www.prnewswire.com/news-release ... 63502.html
