The death of Pharaoh
On a balmy November day in 1922 one of the greatest archeological finds ever would be made. It all started with the discovery of a single rough cut stone step, the first in a staircase that would lead to the most celebrated tomb of modern times. Howard Carter's discovery of the tomb of Tutankhamen would capture popular attention like no other discover before or after it. With each item brought from the

days, a time for which he would still be Pharaoh (Carter 136-139). When no prince arrived, Ankhesenamen named her grandfather Ay co-regent (see note 5), and it is Ay whom we see performing t he "opening of the mouth" ceremony (see note 6) on the mummy of Tutankhamen in a painting in Tutankhamen's burial chamber.
With the availiable evidence, and a little imagination we can theorize the events surrounding the death of Tutankhamen.
