Mask of Tutankhamun

About

In this centenary year of the discovery of the tomb of Tutankhamun we explore the life and death of the boy king. We consider the el-Amarna period in which the young Tutankhaten spent his formative years. Once in power it was in Tutankhamun's reign that the return to orthodoxy took place overthrowing the reforms of his father and abandoning the new capital of el-Amarna. However, Tutankhamun is best known for his tomb discovered by Howard Carter in 1922, and we will of course in this study day we examine the decoration and artefacts from his near-intact tomb in the Valley of the kings.
