Okay, so I'm a grade 11 student that has to write a 1,000 word essay on why the tomb of king Tutankhamun is the greatest archaeological discovery of the world. Can anyone give me the link to some creditable website sources on him and his tomb? I'm hoping to find some in-depth information on the content, as well as anything that could possibly help me! I'm in dire need to help! :(

Hey Ryan,

There are many reasons as to why king tut’s tomb was the greatest discovery. The most important is that it was almost left intact. Though it was believed to be robbed, it was still left with most of its artifacts. There are only two known pharaoh tombs that have escaped tomb robbers—king tut’s and Psusennes I.

The second reason is that King Tut was believed to be the son of Akhenaten. His father created a radical change in Egypt and it is believed his son tried to restore Egypt to its old ways for fear of retaliation.

Third reason, Tut’s tomb was built in a time when Egypt was at its finest in art and religion. In fact, if king tut was in fact the son of Akhenaten, then his depictions should be closely related to his image. (The art of his time I believe was from the Amarna Period. )

Forth Reason, King tut was just a child when he acquired the throne and died at a young age. It is believed his tomb treasures might have been put together at the last minute.

Fifth reason, king tut’s tomb reveals a lot about Ancient Egyptian pharaohs and the culture of the time.

I hope this helps a bit! I know it was a quick response but I think it is enough to get you on your way! :mrgreen:

Haha it's no problem! I worked pretty hard on it, but I'm not much of a history buff; english is more my forte! Well except for Greek history because I love the Spartans, but Egypt was really cool! Rome though...not so much!
I will for sure comment back and give you my mark! I also have a ten minute power point due this friday that compliments the essay; I shall post my mark on that too!
All the best wishes to you, and Merry Christmas :)
