The gold-covered sarcophagus of King Tutankhamun is encased in a tent for restoration procedures at the conservation center of the the Grand Egyptian Museum in Giza, near Cairo, Egypt. Antiquities Minister Khaled el-Anany told reporters that work on the outermost coffin, made of wood and gilded with gold, will take at least eight months. He said that’s because “it was never restored” since 1922, when British archaeologist Howard Carter discovered the 3,000-year-old tomb and the treasures it held.
