Tut was 19 when he died. today he is know to have been a fine warrior and was buried quickly in a small coffin. The golden face was made 72 days after his death and his heart had been removed with his orgins.

We visited Tutankhamen's tomb. The man at the entrance insisted we needed a 'fan' we parted with an English £1 for a piece of Kellogg's Cornflake packet which he demanded we gave back, even though we said we had bought it. Apparently we only hired it! Very interesting information about mummies.

Some of the best preserved bodies (not necessarily wrapped mummies) are found in desert areas where the hot sand immediately dried out all liquid from the bodies, preserving them

Yes, I have seen three of them, ROM, Toronto, ON; Archaeology Museum, Zagreb Hr; National Research Council, Laser Laboratory, London, ON. They were all very interesting to observe.

Interesting, I didn't know about the South American mummies being so much older than the Egyptians.
