An exact 3D-scanned replica of King Tutankhamun’s tomb is set to be re-erected on Luxor’s west bank.

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.
