King Tut's Tomb Back Open After Decade-Long Restoration
The 3,300-year-old tomb that belongs to King Tut just reopened after almost a decade of restoration work. Tutankhamun took the throne in ancient Egypt when he was just 9 years old, and held the throne for 10 years. After years of being on display in the Valley of the Kings, the famous relic needed an upgrade. So a team of a dozen scientists and conservationists got to work, and now the tomb has new lighting, wooden floors, a ventilation system and a new coat of paint.
