By

Note: This exhibition has ended. These pictures are presented for information only.

Tutankhamun is back in London. The Boy King's treasures have returned to London for the first time in 35 years. The exhibition, Tutankhamun and the Golden Age of the Pharaohs, is being presented in a specially designed museum, created inside London's O2 bubble, formerly the Millennium Dome.

Besides the ancient objects, shown in this King Tut Gallery, the exhibition uses newsreels, newspapers and photographs to create the atmosphere that surrounded the discovery, by Howard Carter and Lord Carnarvon, in 1922.

A large proportion of the revenue - from tickets and shop sales, will help preserve Egyptian antiquities. As much as $100 million will be raised by the Tutankhamun London show for museums and children's museums in Egypt.

The exhibition, sampled in this King Tut Gallery, runs from November 15, 2007 to August 31, 2008
