Treasures of Tutankhamun took the US by storm in 1976 and 1977, setting the standard for “blockbuster” touring exhibits. The boy king’s gold death mask was the highlight of the collection first brought to light by archaeologist Howard Carter in 1922. D&P traveled the exhibit across the country, to the delight of millions of visitors, some of whom waited upwards of 8 hours to see the fabulous gold and bejeweled artifacts. (We swear, the mask and beard were still attached when last we saw them. http://onforb.es/1CsD0x0) ). #ThrowBackThursday
'King Tut's Mask Ruined By Shoddy Glue Job'
A spectacularly bad restoration job has irreparably damaged King Tut's beard at Cairo's top museum, leading to a ministerial investigation. One of the world's most precious ancient treasures, Tutankhamun's blue-and-gold funerary mask, was scratched and stained by five members of the Egyptian Museum's curatorial staff who tried an amateurish repair [...]

The Golden Throne of Tutankhamun
This throne was one of the special artifacts found in Tutankhamen's tomb which was discovered in 1922 by Howard Carter. King Tut's throne was made of wood covered in gold leaf. On the throne there is a picture of King Tut and his wife enjoying an afternoon in their garden pavilion. The Sun God Re is shining down on them. The two animal heads in the front are lion heads which were seen on many pieces of Egyptian furniture such as animal couches.

Luxor, Egypt -- 4 November 2007 -- Egyptologists and workers removing King Tutankhamon's sarcophogus in order to retrieve the mummy and transfer it to its new climate controlled vitrine in an adjacent antechamber.  Howard Carter and George Herbert discovered King Tut's nearly intact tomb in 1922, sparking renewed interest in ancient Egypt.  The most popular artifact from the tomb is King Tut's burial mask, now in the Egyptian Museum, that recently underwent a botched repair job to the beard, knocked off by workers cleaning the vitrine.

Botched Repair Attempt Damages King Tut’s Burial Mask http://bit.ly/1wtbPeX

As kids, most of us probably had the experience of hastily attempting to glue something of value back together after breaking it through carelessness. The odds are, though, we weren’t attempting to repair the burial mask of a famed Egyptian pharaoh on display at a museum in Cairo.

Unfortunately, the same can’t be said for the staff at the Egyptian Museum.

According to the Associated Press, a member of the museum’s staff reportedly attempted to reattach the blue and gold braided beard of Tutankhamun using epoxy after the relic apparently became damaged while being cleaned, conservators revealed earlier this week.

The burial mask, which was discovered by UK archeologists Howard Carter and George Herbert back in 1922, was one of the top exhibits at the popular Cairo museum. The over 3,300-year-old mask was damaged last year, and it remains unclear exactly how the incident happened.

Three of the museum’s conservators gave different accounts of when the accident occurred, as well as whether or not it was knocked off by accident while the mask’s display case was being cleaned or was removed because it was loose, the AP said.

However, they all confirmed that they had received orders from their superiors to quickly fix the damaged artifact, and that “an inappropriate adhesive” was used, the wire service added. None of the three individuals would reveal their identity for fear of “professional reprisals”.

“Unfortunately he used a very irreversible material – epoxy has a very high property for attaching and is used on metal or stone but I think it wasn’t suitable for an outstanding object like Tutankhamun’s golden mask,” one of the conservators told the AP.

https://plus.google.com/101670248192604004074 Francesca Van der Geld : Valley of the Kings Back to Site List:  Nestled in the cliffs on the west bank of the Nile at Luxor...

Valley of the Kings Back to Site List: 
 

Nestled in the cliffs on the west bank of the Nile at Luxor, the isolated Valley of the Kings is home to the tombs of the great pharaohs of the New Kingdom (1550 – 1070 BC). They are hidden within a wadi (or valley) formed over millennia by rainfall and water runoff. The first known pharaoh known for certin to have built a tomb within the valley was Hatshepsut, although many Egptologists believe that Thutmose I was the first to locate his tomb here.

The Valley of the Kings is divided into two main branches: the more famous East Valley and the West Valley. Steep cliffs define the latter’s topography, in which only 3 tombs have been found including the Tomb of Ay (KV 23). The eastern valley, covering 2 hectares, resembles a hand with splayed fingers. To the south, towering over the valley, is a peak shaped like a pyramid, known as el-Qurn (the horn). Archaeologists believe that this natural feature influenced the choice of this site for the royal tombs.

There are 63 known tombs in the valley, 26 carved for kings and the others granted to royal family members or the highest of the elite. Of these, fifteen are currently open to the public: Ramesses I, Ramesses III, Ramesses IV, Ramesses V/VI, Ramesses VII, Ramesses IX, Seti II, Siptah, Merenptah, Thutmose III, Thutmose IV, Mentuherkhepshef, Tausret/Sethnakht, Ay, and Tutankhamun. They were carved out of the cliffs as long shafts, heading deep underground and terminating in elaborate burial chambers. The tombs are decorated from top to bottom with religious images and texts from the netherworld books, designed to aid the journey of the king to the afterlife.

Many famous adventurers and archaeologists have explored the valley, including engineer and circus strongman Giovanni Belzoni, and artist/Egyptologist Howard Carter, who is famous for finding the tomb of Tutankhamun in 1922. Recent discoveries in the valley include KV 5, which was re-excavated by Dr. Kent Weeks in 1995, found to be much more extensive than previously thought, and identified as the tomb of the sons of Ramesses II; and KV 63, a cache of late 18th Dynasty material, unearthed by Dr. Otto Schaden. Dr. Zahi Hawass is currently leading the first all-Egyptian team to excavate in the valley; he is exploring the tunnel in the tomb of Seti I and attempting to locate the missing tomb of Ramesses VIII.

What killed Pharaoh Tutankhamun?

I've always been fascinated by Howard Carter's fantastic discovery of Tutankhamun and his treasures. But like many, what is even more fascinating is the mystery of how the 19 year old ruler died.

In the video below, I was surprised to learn for the first time that Tutankhamun was the product of incest. His father and mother were brother and sister. And unlike today, where this kind of sexual relationship is taboo, it was totally acceptable in the days of the Pharaohs to ensure the succession of their bloodlines. Little did they know however the consequences that those unions would have on their descendants.

The BBC video does an excellent job of showing how science is used to unravel factual evidence that paints a strong case of what happened to the boy 3300 years ago. At the heart of the evidence is forensic DNA analysis.

And if you watch the video, you will see how computer science is used for the first time to reconstruct the entire body of Tutankhamun, as he would have looked, before he died.
