Little was known about his life and death until 1922 when British archaeologist Howard Carter discovered his tomb in 1922. Inside the tomb was his coffin — containing his body, which had been mummified for more than 3,000 years.

Although bone fragments in his skull led scientists to initially believe King Tut had died from a blow to the head by political rivals, later investigations in 2006 including a full body scan indicated the skull damage happened after his death.
