King Tut to be Displayed

150_king-tut_170Egyptian officials have announced that the mummy of King Tut will be removed from its sarcophagus and displayed to the public in a climate-controlled glass case starting next month in Luxor. The move is partially to preserve the damaged mummy, which now lies in his tomb with no protection from the humidity generated by tourists. King Tut will be partially rewrapped in new linen, but the face will be left bare when the exhibition begins. Link
