Replica of King Tut’s tomb to be re-erected

Director and Chief Engineer of Factum Arte Michael Ward said that Tutankhamun’s replica tomb took three years to complete and involved the invention of a new technology to record every inch of the tomb and perfectly replicate it.
The ministry has long supported the idea of building replicas of the royal tombs that are currently closed, or need to be closed to the public for their protection, at Theban Necropolis, according to president of the Factum Foundation James Macmillan-Scott.
