    The Ancient Egyptian crown/ headdress of pharaoh Tutankhamun, 1323 BC, found in the discovery of his tomb.

    In 1903 a Norwegian farmer dug into a mound in one of his fields and made a discovery which archaeologists rate as comparable in importance to the grave of Tutankhamun. Soon after he started digging he came across some highly carved wood and contacted archaeologists. The whole mound was excavated in 1905/5 revealing the earliest, the most complete and most beautiful Viking ship to survive.

And their tomb is said to be one of the most spectacular ever found in the Valley of the Kings – until the discovery of the tomb of their great-grandson, King Tutankhamun.
