jul 23, 1323 BC - Tutankhamun tomb, innermost coffin

Description:

Gold and semiprecious stones
Egypt

Tutankhamun was only 9 when he became king during the New Kingdom.

Tutankhamun died at the age of 18 without an heir
His tomb was found in 1922 in the Valley of the Kings. Egyptians had stopped building pyramids because of the grave robbing; so they buried them more secretly in the Valley of the Kings.

Tutankhamun became king after the death of Akhenaton and returned rule back from Amarna to Thebes. Also changed worship from Aten back to Amun.
