Step inside the different rooms and vaults that have been discovered to be contained within King Tut treasures of the Golden Pharaoh tomb.
Sixteen steps descend thru bedrock towards a doorway. This doorway was sealed and plastered but showed signs that it has been permeated through ancient gravediggers at least two times.
This hall has a constant descent and was primarily filled with limestone chips and rubble to prevent grave robbers.
There is a second plaster door on the end, stamped with King Tutankahmun’s royal seal. This door too shows signs of having been opened.
This chamber was discovered in a state of organized chaos, packed full of an array of valuable objects including King Tut’s throne, life-sized statues of the king and a variety of chariots.
The walls are strangely rough and undercoated, including to the idea that it was a fast, sudden burial.
This is the smallest room inside the tomb and was discovered in a state of disarray. It was packed full with furniture, baskets, model boats and more.
It was the last room to be excavated, beginning in October 1927 and ending in spring 1928.
That is the only chamber within the tomb that is adorned, with walls painted shiny yellow and showing scenes of king Tut with various deities.
The unusual length and lack of detail of this artwork contribute to the idea that it was a hasty burial. The room is loaded by four wooden shrines that surround the sarcophagus.
Accessed by an unblocked doorway, this room was packed full of over 5,000 items, most of them related to the funeral or rituals surrounding death.
This room additionally contained two mummified fetuses that many agree with were the stillborn kids of the pharaoh.
Discovered immediately on the mummy within the third coffin of the sarcophagus, the death mask is made from solid gold and weighs around 24 pounds. It was designed to ensure that his spirit recognized the body in afterlife.
