Tutankhamun’s tomb was discovered 3000 years after his death
The tomb of King Tutankhamun was found about 100 years ago. As per the historians, in 1922, a team of British archaeologists discovered the tomb of Tutankhamun. Tutankhamun was an Egyptian pharaoh whose tomb was uncovered by Howard Carter. Tutankhamun became king after the death of his father Akhenaten in 1333 BC at the age of nine. He is also popular as Raja Tut. Tutankhamun means ‘the one with the image of peace’. Unfortunately, his reign lasted only ten years and he died of a mysterious illness at the age of 19.
