King Tut, a Visit to Seattle

 Let's step into the tomb of King Tutankhamun.
Howard Carter, a British archeologist, stepped into
the tomb for the first time in the 1920's and stated
there were wonderful things there.
The above is a replica of the tent and table where he worked.
As a tea lover, notice the transferware teacup and the teapot.

On a recent adventure to the Seattle Science Center I was surrounded by golden and alabaster beauties
of another time.  A time long ago when "The Boy King" reigned.
For a moment in time we could imagine and step through the four rooms of King Tut's tomb.
Included in this exhibit were artifacts from others that had reigned in Egypt.
The golden shoes, magnificent jewelry, King Tut's bed, and a chair.
If you have the opportunity, this is a don't miss show.  I thoroughly enjoyed visiting King Tut and his friends.
