King Tut revisited

Today is the 99th anniversary of the discovery of the tomb of King Tutankhamun. I am not sure what that means, but the little kid in me thinks it is very cool.

Given that the young king died in 1323 BC, I don’t think he would have been all that impressed with the hoopla that formed around him in modern times. I am guessing it all would have seemed very strange to him.

After all, there is no logical reason that the death of a ruler who lived and died more than thirty three centuries ago should have created such a powerful mystique. But maybe that’s the point.
