Tutankhamun, anthropological model. 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 (seen in background) has made him famous in popular culture. Reconstruction by Elisabeth Daynes of the Daynes Studio, Paris, France.
