Tourism cursed tomb of Tut

The Independent reports on the decision to close the burial chamber of Tutankhamun because of damage from visitors.

"Decades of mass tourism has taken its toll, with the fluctuating humidity levels from thousands of panting visitors causing the elaborately painted plaster walls to peel away from the bedrock.

Egyptian officials have announced that the burial chamber is in such bad condition that it will have to be closed." - The Independent
