The tomb was discovered in 1922 by Howard Carter, a British archaeologist and Egyptologist. Almost entirely intact, it honored King Tutankhamen, a pharaoh who ascended to the throne at age nine. When artifacts from the tomb went on display in Paris, in 1967, the “exhibition of the century” attracted more than 1.2 million visitors. A half century later, King “Tut” is back in the City of Light, with an exhibition featuring 150 ancient objects. —J.V.
