Tutankhamun famous golden death mask.

The life and death of Tutankhamun have intrigued researchers ever since the treasure trove of the boy king’s tomb was first discovered in 1922.
A fresh examination of the famous pharaoh’s remains is only likely to add to the fascination after two sensational findings were revealed.
The first: that King Tut’s body may have spontaneously combusted when it was inside his sarcophagus after a botched mummification.
The second: that Tutankhamun may have died in battle after a chariot smashed into him while the warrior king was leading his army.
