Tutankhamun & The Golden Age of the Pharaohs (DVD)

More Views

In 1976 a collection of 55 treasures from the tomb of the Pharaoh Tutankhamun left the Cairo Museum en route to the United States. It took the country by storm and introduced millions to these ancient wonders.

Now, Egypt has granted another opportunity to view such treasures, and again, spectators have been mesmerized.
This exhibit includes 50 major artefacts excavated from Tutankhamun's tomb, including his royal diadem, the gold crown discovered encircling the head of the king's mummified body and one of the gold inlaid canopic coffinettes that contained his mummified internal organs.

More than 70 artefacts from other royal graves are showcased as well, including those of pharaohs Amenhotep ll and Thutmose lV and the rich, intact tomb of Yuya and Tuyu, parents-in-law of Amenhotep lll and great-grandparents of Tutankhamun. All of the treasures in the exhibit are between 3,300 and 3,500 years old.

Hosted by the legendary Omar Sharif, this film also includes interviews with Dr. Zahi Hawass, Secretary General of the Supreme Council of Antiquities in Cairo Egypt, as well as many other individuals that were instrumental in organizing this astonishing exhibit.
