The mask of Tutankhamun

The mask of Tutankhamun

22-12-2015 15:00

Tutankhamun was a king of Egypt. This news is about his mask. People found it in 1924. Egyptian masks had beards on them. The beard was not on the mask. It was broken off.

People put the beard on the mask in 1941. They used glue. The mask was OK until 2014. In 2014, the beard fell off.

People put the beard back. They use glue again. However, people can see the glue. The mask must be fixed.

It takes nine weeks to fix the mask. Now, it is fixed. You can see it in the Egyptian Museum.

Difficult words: found (past of “find”), beard (hair on the bottom of the face), fix (to make something better).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
