Thirty three centuries ago a young pharaoh, worshiped as a god, was laid to eternal rest, his rule mysteriously cut short by an unknown tragedy. Hidden in darkness beneath the deserts and for over 3 millennia, his spectacular golden treasures were finally brought to light with their discovery by Howard Carter in 1922.
