November 4th-Then and Now
At the age of 9, over 3,000 years ago, King Tutankhamen became the King of Egypt. He died at the age of 19. He is commonly called "King Tut".
The tomb of Egypt's "child king" was discovered on November 4, 1922. The tomb was discovered nearly intact in Egypt's Valley of Kings.
King Tut's rule lasted a short nine years, from 1333 B.C. to 1324 B.C. The cause of his death is uncertain.
November the 4Th is also election day for the office of President in the United States of America.
Both days are steeped in an abundance of history, well worth the time and effort it takes to research and study.
As a rule the things that make up our daily on the surface lives is far from the whole truth.
This is a wonderful time to do some in depth study,
both of things past and things that we can have a part in creating, which will become history in a short period of time.
Spend a little time with the Egyptian history books. Learn more about King Tut, along with the culture and times of Ancient Egypt.
This study will shed much light on where we are today, as all history is tied together in many different ways.
