Today I learned about the grave of king King Tut who is was said to be the richest king of Egypt. I will tell you 3 things that I learned about his grave.
- Egyptians believed that if you put a model boat in your tomb it would take you to the underworld, so in his grave, archaeologists found a model boat.
- King Tut's treasure has a value of 15,000,000 USD and almost all of the objects in his tomb, are covered in gold.
- King Tutankhamun built his tomb so that if an earthquake happened rocks would fall off and cover the entrance.
From King Tut's tomb, I learned that he believed in life after death, that he was very rich, and that he was smart and found a way to stop robbers from taking his treasure.
