Exhibition - Tutankhamun His Tomb and His Treasures

I went to this exhibition on the invitation by Egypt Embassy in Dublin. So, masuk free saja bah...sure makan belanja besar on this exhibition. Ye ar, barang-barang pameran dibawa khas dari Egypt ni. Ada tayangan video segala. Seronok gak arr walaupun aku ni dikira kurang berminat dengan hal-hal sejarah dan ilmiah ni..kekkeke

Antara gambar-gambar yang diambil ketika dalam exhibition ni:-



Citer sedikit sebanyak tentang Tutankhamun ni :D

The most well known Egyptian Pharaoh today is, without doubt, Tutankhamun.

Tutankhamun was probably born at Akhetaten which was the capital city of Egypt. He was born in about the year 1346 BC. His father was the pharaoh Akehenhaten.

Tutankhameun and his wifeTutankhamun became Pharaoh of Egypt soon after his father died in 1337 BC, when he was only nine years old.

Soon after he became pharaoh, he married his teenage sister. This was a traditional Egyptian thing to do.

The image shows Tutankhamun with his wife.

By the age of 19 he was dead.

How do we know so much about Tankhamun even though he ruled for such a short time?

The answer is simple. His tomb was well hidden for 3000 years and held treasures that tell us much about King Tut's life and death, as well as life in Ancient Egypt thousands of years ago. In a sense, King Tut's tomb was a time capsule.
