Treasures of Tutankhamun

Tomb Tutanhomon after more than three thousand years has come down to us almost intact, is considered one of the most important discoveries in archeology. Since 1922, when Howard Carter discovered the burial in the "Valley of Kings" near Thebes, a little-known Tutanhomon became perhaps the most famous pharaoh in history. Inside the tomb British Carter and Lord Carnarvon discovered numerous decorations, household items, furniture, works of art of that era, as well as a gold sarcophagus weighing more than 110 pounds with the mummified body of the young king of ancient Egypt.
From March 9 to September 1, 2013 Tutanhomona sarcophagus and treasures from the tomb can be seen in a unique exhibition in Berlin.

The Pharaoh of the XVIII dynasty of the New Kingdom rules about 9 years old, with about 1332 to 1323 years BC (died 19 years of age).
