King Tut lived in Armana, Egypt, where he ruled as pharaoh during the 18th dynasty. Known as "the boy pharaoh," his enduring notoriety came from his reign and the discovery of his valuable tomb.
The Sphinx is important because it is one of the earliest and largest ancient Egyptian carvings. It is also famous because no one knows exactly when it was carved. There is no concrete information about why it was carved or its significance.
Egyptian tombs were often filled with tools, amulets, jewelry and other everyday items. These items were intended to help facilitate the transition from death to the afterlife.
