King Tut

​​One of the most fascinating kings that ruled in the Egyptian history. Not known for his military campaigns or his expeditions to exchange goods, but for his –almost intact – collection found in his tomb in the Valley of the Kings in 1922.
He was an Egyptian Pharaoh of the 18th dynasty (ruled approx. 1332 BC – 1323 BC in). He is popularly referred to as King Tut. His name, Tut Ankh Amun, means “Living Image of Amun”. Referred to as the king of upper and lower Egypt, the lord of the two kingdoms and the son of the Sun God; God Ra.
Only 9 years old when he ascended the throne of the country, he is by far, the most famous king in Egyptian history due to his golden collection found inside his tomb.
The 1922 discovery made by Howard Carter of Tut Ankh Amun’s nearly intact tomb received worldwide press coverage. It sparked a renewed public interest in ancient Egypt, for which Tut Ankh Amun’s popular mask, now in Cairo Museum, remains the popular symbol.
Exhibits of artifacts from his tomb have toured the world. Tut Ankh Amun’s treasure is still attracting millions of visitors year after year. His collection is now on display at the second floor of the Cairo museum and consists of approx. 5,398 objects. Howard Carter himself spent nearly 10 years cataloging his find.
Excavations in Egypt still reveal new artifacts on daily basis belonging to different eras and different kings and queens. Egypt mania has widely spread around the world; of course with the help of King Tut Ankh Amun’s discovered treasure.​​

The Boats

During the ancient Egyptian civilization, they had two kinds of boats. One kind was for use on the Nile or at seas for different expeditions. The other kind was for funerary and religious proposes. Different materials were used for constructing boats like Cedar wood, Sycamore wood and Papyrus reeds. They put models of boats inside tombs as symbols of belongings deceased once owned. So they can enjoy having them in their after life.
