'Pharaoh's Tomb' by Project Genius


Early civilisations shaped our world by solving puzzles. Faced with a problem, they were able to visualise and execute a creative solution with a few resources. These brilliant innovations are the foundations of our modern society and the mark of true genius.

Because the ancient Egyptians saw their pharaohs as gods, they carefully preserved their bodies after death, burying them in elaborate tombs containing rich treasures to accompany the rulers into the afterlife. The most famous sarcophagus ever excavated belonged to King Tutankhamun. Discovered in 1922 by the archaeologist Howard Carter in the Valley of the Kings. King Tut's tomb held a wealth of objects that give us unique insights into the true genius of ancient Egyptian history.
