It is believed that King Tut died 3,000 ago at age 19. His tomb was discovered in 1922 in the Valley of the Kings. Now the face of the boy king can finally be seen by the public, but in a climate-controlled case. Recently, Zahi Hawass, the head of High Council for Antiquities in Egypt removed the sarcophagus and revealed the true identity of the most famous of all Egyptian rulers. The mystery surrounding King Tut's death was solved in 2005 when a CT scan was performed on the pharaoh's mummy. A fracture to his left thighbone was the evidence to prove that he broke his leg before he died and it became infected. Another theory is that the fracture was created by the embalmers. A hole in his head was thought to have been drilled by the embalmers and not to be the cause of death from murder. It was decided from the CT scan that King Tut stood 5'7" tall and was in good health. Be sure to read my article on the current King Tut exhibit "Tutankhamen and the Golden Age of the Pharaohs."
