In 1976 a collection of 55 treasures from the tomb of the Pharaoh Tutankhamun left the Cairo Museum en route to the United States. It took the country by storm and introduced millions of Americans to these wonders of the ancient world. Now, Egypt has granted another opportunity for us to view such treasures, and again, spectators are mesmerized. Tutankhamun and the Golden Age of the Pharaohs DVD is hosted by Omar Sharif and includes interviews with Dr. Zahi Hawass, Secretary General of the Supreme Council of Antiquities in Cairo Egypt, as well as may other individuals that were instrumental in organizing this exhibit. The exhibit includes 50 major artifacts excavated from Tutankhamun's tomb, including his royal diadem the gold crown discovered encircling the head of the king's mummified body that he likely wore while living and one of the gold and inlaid canopic coffinettes that contained his mummified internal organs. More than 70 artifacts from other royal graves are showcased as well, including those of pharaohs Amenhotep ll and Thutmose lV and the rich, intact tomb of Yuya and Tuyu, parents-in-law of Amenhotep lll and great-grandparents of Tutankhamun. All of the treasures in the exhibit are between 3,300 and 3,500 years old.
