Caption: Tutankhamun restoration, illustration. This famous Egyptian pharaoh, a boy King, died in his late teens and remained buried in the Valley of Kings for over 3300 years. He ruled from 1333-1324 BC in the period of Ancient Egypt known as the New Kingdom. He was discovered in November 1922 by British Egyptologist Howard Carter. Although only of moderate historical significance, Tutankhamun's almost completely intact tomb and solid gold funeral mask has made him famous in popular culture. Professional restoration of the mask and its broken beard took place in 2015, correcting damage from an earlier negligent and inferior restoration.
