On  November 4, 1922, one of the most famous archaeological discoveries is made, when the tomb of young Egyptian Pharaoh Tutenkhamen (King Tut) was found by Howard Carter in the Valley of the Kings. King Tut was a boy-king of the 18th Dynasty (14 century BC) and died aged just 19.

On March 6, 1924, the Egyptian government opened the mummy case of King Tutankhamen.

Rigorous tests revealed that he had suffered from many genetic disorders due to his parents being closely related, and that this – combined with malaria – had contributed to his premature death.
