The young king Tutankhamun was previously regarded as an inconsequential ruler of the 18th dynasty in the new kingdom of Ancient Egypt until the discovery of his tomb, which sparked a worldwide fascination with the life and death of this previously obscure figure. His nearly fully intact tomb was discovered by Howard Carter and his archaeological team in 1922. This tomb generated countless questions and ideas about the life and death of Tutankhamun (Tut). The wall paintings and the artefacts found in the tomb, as well as the pharaoh’s body itself allowed numerous theories to be developed as to how King Tut led his life. However, through historical and scientific research, many of the ideas conveyed by the tomb were proven to be false.
Another artefact that clearly shows this relationship is the lamp found in the antechamber. These artefacts clearly reveal a personal and intimate portion of Tutankhamun’s life.

It is the pharaoh’s duty to defeat the enemy forces and to establish and maintain order throughout Egypt.
