King Tutís Final Secrets
It all started a rage in antiquities with the discovery of King Tutís (Tutankhamun)Tomb in 1922. Rumors abounded of curses and whether they were real or not people searched and sometimes plummeted the tombs of other pharaohs and queens all over Egypt. There has been much speculation on how King Tut died of such an early age. With modern technology of 3-D CT Scans we might have finally answered that question and the question of what did the young king really looked like.
With the scans two separate paleosculptors use their digital stuff and recreate what the young King might have looked like. While other scientist use the scans to figure out just how the young king died.
So National Geographic Channel brings us the story in two showings in May. This is something I am looking forward to seeing. I have always been a fan of Egyptian antiquities and history, I got to stand in line for almost 2 hours in Los Angeles over 25 years ago to see the King Tut exhibit. Just last month I was fortunate to see another Egyptian exhibit in Las Vegas that was great. Yeah I know some people go to Las Vegas for lots of things you say, but a museum? Yes there are lots to see and do and sometimes you have to pick your favorites. I live in the Midwest and knew my chances of this exhibit coming to my area were slim and none. So it was a no brainier for us! So if you are like us and like anything Egyptian tune into National Geographic Channel in May for King Tutís Final Secrets.
