Most people have heard of the famous boy king, but don't know much about him. This program focuses on Pharaoh Tut-Ankh-Amun and explores why he is so famous, the remarkable gold treasures found in his tomb, and the story of how he was discovered in 1922. We virtually explore his entire tomb, learn more about what his daily life may have been like, and celebrate the treasures of King Tut. 2022 marks the 100th anniversary of the discovery of his tomb and we'll celebrate Egyptology and the archaeologists who made it happen!
