Replica of Tomb of Tutankhamun to be Installed




"An exact replica of the tomb of Tutankhamun is set to be installed near the 3,000-year-old original, in what one of the world's leading Egyptologists has called a revolutionary development in Egyptian archaeological conservation.

Officials hope the £420,000 project will prolong the lie of the original whilst promoting a new model of sustainable tourism and research in a country where many pharaonic sites are under severe threat".
