Abstract:

In 1922 deep beneath the desert in the Valley of the Kings, archaeologist Howard Carter discovers the tomb of the boy-Pharaoh, Tutankhamun. In 1968, King Tut's corpse is x-rayed and undergoes an autopsy. The examination confirms the boy-king's age and royal status; and allows speculation on a possible cause of death. Yet, the beautiful artifacts preserved with the mummy for 3 millennia are now decomposing in the Cairo Museum, victims of modern pollution and the lack of funds, and perhaps will, to preserve them. What will be their fate??
