Tut Tut

Interesting exhibit, but I wonder how much of the story is interesting (restoration of the old gods after Achnatan) because of access to the artifacts, how much due to the story itself.

In other words, if other tombs had been preserved as well, would the stories also be interesting?

We caught it while in London earlier this week...

Tutankhamun :: About the Exhibition:

"It has been almost 30 years since the golden artifacts of the boy-king last left their home in Egypt. In the 1970's, the unprecedented King Tut exhibit fascinated millions of visitors with the marvelous treasures of King Tut's tomb, setting attendance records worldwide. Now Tutankhamun's treasures are back, giving a new generation the chance to learn firsthand about the life and magic of this ancient monarch."
