King Tut: all that glitters 

Tutankhamun needs no introduction. The boy king's name and funerary mask are worldwide icons of ancient Egyptian culture and glory. In the 1970s, North America received its first live look at artifacts from Tut's tomb, in what was thought to be a "once-in-a-lifetime" traveling exhibition. And people today still talk about it.
