Whodunnit – King Tut’s mask is damaged

30 Jan

Tut. Tut. It has been revealed that workers at Cairo’s Egyptian Museum accidentally knocked the braided beard off the burial mask of King Tutankhamen, and the hasty glue job to repair the famous relic may have caused even more damage. Museum officials, however, are confident the mask can be properly repaired. Here is another story from National Public Radio (NPR).
