In November 1922, in the Valley of the Kings near Luxor in Egypt, after years of searching, a team led by English archaeologist Howard Carter discovered the remains of ancient Egypt’s boy pharaoh, Tutankhamun. They had been hidden away for more than 3,000 years. To mark a centenary since the historic discovery, Egyptologist Aidan Dodson speaks to Eve Jackson about ancient Egypt’s most famous king, what was inside the tomb and why it still fascinates us today.
