America to exhibit King Tutankhamun's objects next year

An exhibit of Egypt's King Tutankhamun will return to the United States next year with three stops, beginning in Dallas.

The exhibit opening in Oct. 2008 at the Dallas Museum of Art will be followed by stops at two yet-to-be-name museums.

"Tutankhamun and the Golden Age of the Pharaohs" drew nearly 4 million visitors during its two-year, four-city tour that wrapped up this fall after stops in Los Angeles, Fort Lauderdale, Chicago and Philadelphia. When the exhibit opened in 2005, it was the first time in more than 25 years that treasures from King Tut's tomb were shown in the U.S.

"I want everyone in Texas to know that the boy king is coming to town, and I personally invite everyone to see this great exhibition so that a new generation of people will experience the history and magic of the boy king," said Zahi Hawass, secretary general of Egypt's Supreme Council of Antiquities, said in a news release from the Dallas Museum of Art on Monday.

Next year's exhibit will include artifacts that are new to the show and have not been seen before outside of Egypt.

With artifacts between 3,300 and 3,500 years old, the exhibit gives a glimpse into the life of Tutankhamun and other royals. Tutankhamun died under mysterious circumstances around age 18 or 19, in the ninth year of his reign.

More than 5.8 million people voted for Nicholas Maduro at the presidential election in Venezuela. This is more than a quarter of registered voters. Why did those people vote for the man, who, as Western media write, took Venezuela to the brink of collapse?
