Memes, New York, and News: ON THIS DAY IN 1923 King Tut's burial chamber was entered British archeologist Howard Carter entered the inner burial chamber of Tutankhamun's tomb and found the 3,300-year-old sarcophagus and mummy of the Egyptian pharaoh remarkably preserved NIMBLE NEWS NETWORK Tutankhamun (King Tut) was an Egyptian pharaoh who lived around 3,300 years ago. He ascended the throne at the age of 9 and died when he was 19. His tomb was found in an area called the Valley of the Kings, east of the Nile River, in November of 1922. The burial chamber, which housed his mummified remains, was not entered until this day in 1923. Excavators at the time had an agreement with the Egyptian government. They could keep half of whatever they found. The other half went to the government. Intact tombs were the exception. Everything discovered in intact tombs belonged to the government. That rule was not honored. In 2011, the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City agreed to return 19 artifacts it had acquired from the tomb. As for King Tut’s mummy, it remained in the tomb and was never put on public display until 2007. Last year, for the first time ever, the tomb and all 5,000 of the artifacts King Tut was buried with, more than three millennia ago, were shown in galleries at the billion-dollar Grand Egyptian Museum (also known as the Giza Museum), located between Cairo and the pyramids.
