Tutankhamun is tomb was opened by an archaeology team headed by Englishman Howard Carter in 1922 and made the former Egyptian King, as well as the modern archaeologist, an instant rock star!! KING TUT'S MUMMY to be revealed to an eagerly awaiting world!! Fantastic VALLEY OF THE KINGS history revealed in this 1925 newspaper!! Suitable for framing, this historic piece would make the perfect addtion to be displayed alongside your fine ANCIENT EGYPT collection!! Tutankhamun was nine years old when he became Pharaoh, son of god Ra, and reigned for approximately ten years. In historical terms, Tutankhamun's significance stems from the fact that his reign was close to the apogee of Egypt as a world power and from his rejection of the radical religious innovations introduced by his predecessor and father, Akhenaten. Secondly, his tomb in the Valley of the Kings was discovered by Carter almost completely intact—the most complete ancient Egyptian royal tomb ever found. As Tutankhamun began his reign at such an early age, his vizier and eventual successor, Ay, was probably making most of the important political decisions during Tutankhamun's reign. Kings were venerated after their deaths through mortuary cults and associated temples. Tutankhamun was one of the few kings worshiped in this manner during his lifetime. A stela discovered at Karnak and dedicated to Amun-Ra and Tutankhamun indicates that the king could be appealed to in his deified state for forgiveness and to free the petitioner from an ailment caused by sin. Temples of his cult were built as far away as in Kawa and Faras in Nubia. The title of the sister of the Viceroy of Kush included a reference to the deified king, indicative of the universality of his cult. Very good condition.
