Se­crets Of Tu­tankhamun’s Trea­sures

SBS, 7.30pm

The Gympie Times - - LIFE -

His tomb was dis­cov­ered way back in 1922, but Egyp­tian king Tu­tankhamun’s rest­ing place is still a trea­sure trove of his­tory, painstak­ingly be­ing ex­plored. Filled with more than 5000 arte­facts and burst­ing at its mum­mi­fied seams with gold, the child king’s life story has long been a source of fas­ci­na­tion. After watch­ing this three-part se­ries, premier­ing tonight, you may not be able to look at the king’s leg­endary death mask, which was made with 10kg of gold, in the same way. Egyp­tol­o­gist Ni­cholas Reeves throws a the­ory up that per­haps it wasn’t meant for Tu­tankhamun after all.
