In 1922, Howard Carter, an Egyptologist searching in the Valley of Kings discovered the tomb of Tutankhamun.
Carter had discovered a royal tomb, full of gold treasures, that had remained unditurbed for more than 3000 years.
In the tomb of Tutankhamun, Howard found gold jewellery, a gold throne, gold chests, gold furniture, and the gold tomb of Tutankhamun. Inside the tomb was a gold face mask of the boy king.
The golden face mask of Tutankhamun is on display in the Cairo museum.
The gold found in Tutankhamun's tomb had been mined from the hills of Egypt and traded from all over the ancient world.
As gold does not tarnish, the gold items found in the tomb of Tutankhamun are as lustrous and fresh today, as they were when placed in the tomb more than 3000 years ago by the Ancient Egyptians.
