Tutankhamun – His Tomb and the Treasures has meticulously reconstructed the famous tomb and the golden artifacts found by Howard Carter in November 1922, with the help of Cairo craftspeople who built more than a thousand exact replicas over five years.

AllAfrica’s Juanita Williams and Bush Radio’s Shadreck Setti interviewed Dr Tarek El Awady, described as a “walking encyclopaedia” on ancient Egypt, about one of the most famous pharaohs, and seeing the “wonderful things” Carter spoke of, at the exhibition at Grandwest in Cape Town.
