What Types of Objects Were Buried With Tutankhamen's Mummy?
In principle, the mummification of a king concerned his human body, a part of his identity that he shared with all other human beings.
Salima Ikram and Andre Veldmeijer, founded the Tutankhamun Sticks and Staves Project to document the items in the assemblage, analyze the technologies used to produce them, identify their uses and understand their role and position in Tutankhamun’s tomb, death and life. Though some of these many items could have been walking aids, it is more likely Tutankhamun used these staves as royal regalia for religious rituals and public appearances.
