|Subject||Egypt, Pharaohs, Tutankhamen|
At age nine, Tutankhamen became pharaoh, ruler of Egypt. His most important act was to reestablish his peoples religion of multiple gods. Before age twenty, he was dead. For over three thousand years, Egypts desert sand hid the tomb of Tutankhamen, and Egyptians forgot about the ancient king. Then, in 1922, archaeologist Howard Carter found a door buried in the sand. It led to the greatest ancient Egyptian treasure ever found. Tutankhamen didnt have time to become a great pharaoh, but his tomb is a modern treasure—but not just for its gold and jewels, but for the stories it holds about ancient Egypt.
