Egypt Spruces Up King Tut’s Sarcophagus

The Egyptian Ministry of Antiquities announced that experts have started restoration work on the golden-plated sarcophagus of Egypt’s 18th dynasty boy-king Tutankhamun. It marks the first time that such a project has been initiated since the discovery of the tomb in 1922, which was found untouched. The coffin and the tomb’s collection of some 5,000 artifacts are expected to be the centerpiece of the new Grand Egyptian Museum set to open in 2020.
