King Tut Is Back In The NYC...

No, not the Arch Villian from the 1960's Batman TV series featured to your left... the real thing!!! There is a major Ancient Egyptian exhibit on display over at the Discovery Time Square Exposition, located on 44 st. between 7th and 8th Avenues in Manhattan. The exhibit features thousands of Egyptian items, but the highlight would have to be King Tut's coffinette and the crown that was found upon his head when the tomb was discovered. Also, for the first time ever there will be a DNA exhibit that sheds new light on the life of the boy king. It is crazy how well known King Tut is here in the USA, even though he died at a really young age and didn't accomplish much in his short time as pharoah. I have also included a short Youtube video that was included on the homepage for the exhibit. If you have any additional questions, check out the website here.
