2008 Summer Program

The Egyptian leader - perhaps best known to most of us - Tutankhamun rose to the throne in 1341 BC. He was only 9 years old and ruled for only 10 years. But because his tomb was undisturbed until Howard Carter opened it 75 years ago, we have treasures that offer a vivid picture of his life. Construct Tut's chariot, his raft for hunting a Hippopotamus, his throne, his barge, his mummy and the story of a young leader's life.
