Dear Art Educators,

This interactive site was suggested in Scout Report.

9. Unraveling the Mysteries of King Tutankhamun [Macromedia Flash Player]
http://magma.nationalgeographic.com/ngm/tut/mysteries/index.html

With a major exhibit on King Tutankhamun set to return to the United States
shortly, interest in this extremely popular pharaoh of Egypt continues to
build. National Geographic has created this fun and informative website that
allows visitors to examine his body through the use of CT scan imagery and
see how he might have looked. Clicking on the entrance to this multimedia
feature, visitors are greeted by audio narration that complements a 360-
degree view of the four walls of King Tut's tomb. Visitors can then look
closer at each wall in detail by using a built-in interface to navigate the
various decorative and symbolic markings on each side. After this first
section, visitors can move to the "Royal Wrappings" feature, which includes
a detailed look at the many layers in which King Tut was entombed. The site
is rounded out by a selection of additional links to such resources as
articles from National Geographic dealing with Egyptian archaeology. [KMG]
