Tutankhamun reigned for roughly ten years. He died around the age of 18 and was buried in a tomb in the Valley of the Kings.

His burial place was hidden for many centuries. The Egyptologist Howard Carter discovered it in 1922. It contained many amazing artefacts, including Tutankhamun’s famous golden death mask, a chariot and a dagger made from meteorite iron!
