Tutankhamun: Secrets Of The Boy King

New research uncovers the real Tutankhamun, calling into question long-held theories about his life and death.


The treasure of Tutankhamun is a fabulous gold hoard, the story of its discovery the stuff of legend. But for thousands of years the life of the boy king has remained shrouded in mystery. Now Lord Carnarvon, whose great-grandfather helped discover Tutankhamun’s tomb, travels across Egypt examining recent finds that will change our image of the boy king forever.

With unique access to the treasures of the tomb, including many pieces never seen before on public display, this film takes us behind closed doors as Lord Carnarvon meets Dr Zahi Hawass and a team of Egyptologists who are using the latest techniques and computer graphics to study the original artefacts. Their findings call into question long-held theories about the life and death of the boy king.
