Egypt's Ministry of Tourism & Antiquities organizes a virtual tour for Tutankhamun’ s hall

File - Tutankhamun’ s hall. CAIRO - 29 May 2020: Ministry of Tourism and Antiquities and Virtual Mid East organised a virtual tour for Tutankhamun’ s hall at the Egyptian Museum in Tahrir on May 28. The tour explored the treasured collection of the young king.On the 4th of November 1922, British archaeologist Howard Carter made the most spectacular discovery in the history of archaeology: the tomb of the young king Tutankhamun.Painstakingly excavated over the course of almost ten years, its four small rock-cut chambers hidden beneath the sands of the Valley of the Kings yielded over 5,000 incredible objects, bearing witness to the life and death of this king.Most likely the son of the “heretic” king Akhenaten, Tutankhamun ascended the throne at around the age of nine, in the aftermath of the great religious upheaval of the Amarna Period.He was married to Ankhsenamun, third daughter of Akhenaten and his chief queen, Nefertiti. Early in his reign, the golden pharaoh restored wealth and power to the great god Amun-Re, whose worship Akhenaten had suppressed.Although a recent CT scan of Tutankhamun’s mummy has revealed interesting new information about the techniques in his mummification, and has confirmed that he was about 10 when he died, the cause of his death is still uncertain.Most of the objects discovered in the tomb of Tutankhamun on display here were actually used during his lifetime.Others, in contrast, were made specifically to be buried with him. What both types of objects have in common, however, is that they all stand as testimonies to their makers’ mastery of their craft, and to the great wealth that the royal treasury had accrued through the empire that the kings of the New Kingdom had built.Among the most significant of Tutankhamun’s objects on display are:1-The Gold Mask2-The innermost coffin, made of solid gold3-The middle coffin4-The gold coffinettes for his internal organs

Also, those who intentionally spread rumors about the novel coronavirus can face a five-year imprisonment sentence, the public prosecution said late in March.In a press statement, the prosecution said that legal action will be taken in conformity with articles no. (80), (102) and (188) of the criminal law.The Egyptian Health Ministry in its daily briefing on Wednesday said 910 people have tested positive for coronavirus (COVID-19) in Egypt over the last 24 hours, bringing the total number of cases to 19,666.The ministry also reported 19 deaths due to the novel virus, upping the total number to 816.Also, the test results of 5,798 people turned from positive to negative, the ministry said, including 5,205 people who totally recovered.
