Oct.3-May 7, 2009 at Dallas Museum of Art
Opening on October 3, 2008, at the Dallas Museum of Art, Tutankhamun and the Golden Age of the Pharaohs provides insight into the life of Tutankhamun and other royals of the 18th Dynasty (1555-1305 B.C.). All of the treasures in the exhibition are between 3,300 and 3,500 years old. Tutankhamun was one of the last kings of Egypt's 18th Dynasty and ruled during a crucial, turmoil-filled period of Egyptian history.The boy king died under mysterious circumstances around age 18 or 19, in the ninth year of his reign (1323 B.C.).
The exhibit offers glimpses of that evolving period. On display are fifty of Tutankhamun's burial objects, including his royal diadem - the gold crown discovered encircling the head of his mummified body that he likely wore as king - and one of the gold and precious stone inlaid canopic coffinettes that contained his mummified internal organs.
More than seventy additional objects from tombs of 18th Dynasty royals, as well as several non-royal individuals, are also exhibited. These stone, faience, and wood pieces from burial sites before Tut's reign give visitors a sense of what the lost burials of other royalty and commoners may have been like.
