    Gold King Tut Mask - Description of the Death Mask of Tutankhamun The King Tut Mask, which is pictured above, depicts an actual likeness of the young Tutankhamun. The King Tut Mask weighs ten kilos, 24lbs and measures 54 cm (21 in) in height and 15 inches wide. The workmanship is quite exquisite and its value is priceless.
  2. Managing Director
    The Canopic Shrine of Tutankhamun consisted of four miniature mummy-shaped gold sarcophagi in which the embalmed internal organs were preserved. They were inserted in the four compartments of the alabaster canopic chest and were covered with beautiful stoppers in the shape of the king's head.
  3. King Tut Throne – The Golden Throne of Tutankhamen The King Tut Throne is one of the most magnificent articles among the copious treasures of Tutankhamen discovered by Howard Carter in November, 1922. Also known as Tut’s Golden Throne, the name may be a light misnomer, since it’s likely that it was an auxiliary royal seat for the boy king. Also, the King Tut Throne is actually made primarily of wood, not gold, though it is beautifully overlaid in sheet gold and silver, further adorned with semi-precious stones, glaze, and colored glass.
    The golden throne that Howard Carter discovered in the Antechamber beneath the hippopotamus couch is similar to the chair belonging to Sitamun. The style was popular for royal chairs of the Eighteenth Dynasty. Instead of female torsos protruding from the seat, however, the more traditional lions are in their place.
  4. Managing Director
    King Tut Sarcophagus - Definition The Ancient Egyptian Sarcophagus is synonymous with the famous artefacts found in the tomb of King Tut. What exactly was the King Tut sarcophagus and what was its purpose? Definition (plural: sarcophagi) : A sarcophagus is a stone container that usually houses a coffin and an Egyptian mummy.
  5. Managing Director
    Anubis is one of the most iconic gods of ancient Egypt. Anubis is the Greek version of his name, the ancient Egyptians knew him as Anpu (or Inpu). Anubis was an extremely ancient deity whose name appears in the oldest mastabas of the Old Kingdom and the Pyramid Texts as a guardian and protector of the dead.

Coptic Antiquities   
Coptic Period (284 - 641 AD)
At the end of the third century AD, the religion of Egypt had become predominantly Christian, and it would remain so until the advent of Islam in the seventh century. This period of Egyptian history as part of the Eastern Roman Empire is known as the Coptic or Byzantine period. The Coptic church is one of the eastern orthodox churches, which, together with the Syrian orthodox church, separated from the church of Constantinople in 451 AD. Coptic Egypt used the indigenous Coptic language for religious matters, while Greek served as the language of the administration. The monastic movement originated in Coptic Egypt (Saints Anthony and Pachomius), and monasteries were built across the country, such as the monastery of Anba Jeremias in Saqqara that was founded around 470 AD and functioned until the middle of the ninth century. In the arts, Coptic Egypt is famous for its elaborately decorated textiles that are preserved in many collections.
