Many things tell not only about Tut's status, but also about his life in general.

Related video < p> In November 1922, archaeologists were able to open the tomb of Tutankhamen. It was filled with treasures. But some things help to better understand the details of his life. What were the thirty most interesting treasures of the iconic ancient Egyptian pharaoh, writes Live Science.

Mask of Tutankhamen

The death mask is one of the most famous artifacts of his tomb. It is made mostly of gold. But there are other stones on it, as well as colored glass paste. The weight of the mask is 10 kilograms. On its reverse side there is a spell from the Book of the Dead. It is written in hieroglyphs and “guarantees the ability of the mask to function as the face of the deceased.” Marianne Eaton-Kraus, senior fellow at the American Research Center in Egypt, noted in her book that the same spell can be seen in Tutankhamun's third innermost coffin.

Daggers

The pharaoh was buried with two daggers. One of them has an iron blade, the other has a golden one. The first was on the right thigh. But the iron was made from a meteorite – the dagger itself is of extraterrestrial origin. Complex patterns were carved on it.

The second was found above the abdomen. The handle was also intricately carved. Both daggers showed signs of wear. However, it is unknown if they were ever used during hunting or other activities.

Board games

There were at least 4 games in the tomb, according to The Game of the Ancient Egyptians: Board Games Across the Borders. Some game pieces and boards were made from ivory. It is believed that with the help of these instruments they played “twenty” and “senet”. The rules of the games are not entirely clear. However, the Great Egyptian Museum notes that the Senet was played with a board of 30 squares. And the goal of the game was to move around all the pieces from the board. At the same time, this could not be allowed to be done by the opponent.

Dummy

Not everyone knows about this find. A mannequin was found near the tomb. It was used to select clothing or jewelry. It could showcase exquisite robes and more. Probably, with the help of a mannequin, they sewed new clothes and changed the old ones.

Golden sandals

Tutankhamun was wearing them. They had a total length of about 29.5 cm. It is believed that they were made specifically for burial. They were made in the same way as thin metal is made today.

Coffins

The pharaoh was buried in 3 coffins. They were nestled in each other. All of them show the image of Tutankhamen with a longish beard. The outer part of the coffin was made of gilded wood. At the same time, the third was made of pure gold – it was here that it was found along with the death mask.

Throne

2 thrones were found in the tomb. One of them looked like a bishop's chair. It was made from ebony. The second had images of Pharaoh Tutankhamun and his wife Ankhesenamun. It is only one meter high. It was covered with gold and silver foil, colorful stones and glass.

< p>Chariots

Another interesting find in the tomb was 6 chariots. According to research, there was a canopy over one of them. It also had images of a falcon and various hieroglyphs.

Pipes

Archaeologists have also discovered some of the most ancient musical instruments. The two trumpets were made of silver and gilded bronze. These trumpets were even played by musician James Tupper in a 1939 BBC broadcast.

Anubis

The tomb contained a statue of an ancient Egyptian god made of wood and gold.
