Tutankhamun’s gilded coffin leaves its tomb for the first time since 1922 | Somerset County Gazette

The gilded outer coffin has been removed from the king’s tomb for the first time since it was discovered in 1922 and it will take eight months to restore weaknesses in the plaster.

Tutankhamun, known as the “Golden Pharaoh”, was an 18th dynasty king who ruled from the age of eight to 19. He died in 1324BC and is best known for being the first royal tomb to be discovered almost entirely intact.
