The exact cause of King Tut’s death is one of ancient history's mysteries. One of the causes was by mummification in the Era, The mummification crushed his ribs which caused him to die. Some say a hippo killed him by crushing injury in his chest. He was 19 when he died.

King Tut's Tomb
King Tut's Tomb is a new exhibition that is now Zurich. Trained craftsman in Cairo built more than 1,000 replicas under scientific supervision. The mask of King Tut weighs 24 pounds. There is also a tomb of King Tut and his wife, the tomb shows King Tut sitting back and relaxing while his wife rubs ointment on his shoulder.
Egyptian Mummification
Mummification is the preservation of a body. Either human or animal. Mummies are either done wet, frozen, or dried. It can be a natural process or it can be deliberately achieved. Egyptian mummies were deliberately made by drying the body. By getting rid of the moisture they got rid of the source of decay. They dried the body using a salt called “Natron”. Natron is a natural substance that’s found in abundance along the Nile River. The Egyptians believed that there were six important aspects that made up a human being: the physical body, shadow, name, ka (spirit), ba (personality), and the akh (immortality). Each one of these elements played an important role in the well being of an individual. Each was necessary to achieve rebirth into the afterlife.
Hieroglyphics are little pictures (signs) that made up words. There are two types; phonetic signs (like our alphabet), which represented sounds and determinatives. Hieroglyphics were inscribed on monuments, walls of important buildings and tombs.Written in rows and columns and could be read from left to right or right to left. We would not know any of the hieroglyphs meant if it weren't for the discovery of the Rosetta Stone in 1799. The Rosetta stone is a tablet written in three different languages; Hieroglyphics, Arabic (Demotic) and Greek.
