Tut's tomb to tour
Lexile

Artifacts from King Tut's tomb are going on tour. The artifacts will tour next year. This is to mark the upcoming 100th anniversary of the discovery of the Egyptian pharaoh's resting place.

The exhibit is called ="KING TUT: Treasures of the Golden Pharaoh." It will go on view at the Los Angeles museum in March. It will be there for 10 months. That's according to the California Science Center. Then it will head to Europe in January 2019. It will be part of a 10-city international tour.

The museum says the exhibition represents the largest collection of artifacts and gold from Tutankhamun's tomb ever to go on public display outside of Egypt. It says 40 percent of the items are leaving Egypt for the first and last time. Then they will go on permanent display. They will be at a new museum being built near the Giza Pyramids. They are in Egypt.

King Tut's tomb was discovered in 1922. That was more than 3,000 years after his death.
