King Tut’s dog

King Tut‘s dog is retuning to home to Egypt after more than 3,000 years.

19 artefacts, including a tiny bronze dog that belonged to the boy-Pharaoh King Tutankhamun, are being returned home to Egypt by the Metroplitan Museum of Art. They were stolen soon after the tomb was discovered by British archaeologist, Howard Carter in 1922 in the Valley of the Kings.

Pharaoh Tutankhamun reigned from about 1336 to 1327BC, when scientists believe he died of malaria.
