King Tut Day

When : Always November 4th

King Tut Day celebrates the date of the discovery of King Tutankhamen's Tomb.

Over 3,000 years ago, King Tutankhamen became the King of Egypt at the age of 9. He died at the age of 19. He is commonly called "King Tut". The tomb of Egypt's "child king" was discovered on November 4, 1922. The tomb was discovered nearly intact in Egypt's Valley of Kings.

King Tut's rule lasted a short nine years, from 1333 B.C. to 1324 B.C. The cause of his death is uncertain. Murder and an innocent accident are the two main theories.

How to celebrate this special day: Spend a little time with your nose in the Egyptian history books. Learn more about King Tut, along with the culture and times of Ancient Egypt.

Happy King Tut Day!!!

    I spent the afternoon studying Abraham and Sarah and part of the study was their time in Egypt. Does that count?

  I did not know that my birthday fell on King Tut Day. Perhaps this is why I feel such a connection to all things about ancient Egypt. The period has always facinated me.
