Teacher's Guide - Ancient Egypt - King Tutankhamun Tomb Frieze Details

This reusable guide covers 1333 BC - 1324 BC and focuses on King Tutankhamun. It is to be used in conjunction with the Egyptian King Tut tomb frieze (EDU 002). A "frieze" is a long band of painted (or sculpted) decoration on a wall. Frieze decorations often depict scenes in a sequence of panels. Much of our understanding of Egyptian daily life comes from paintings and reliefs that decorate tombs. King Tut inherited the family throne at a young age. His father, Akhenaten, made radical changes in Egypt. His new religious ideas were not accepted by most Egyptians. Upon inheriting the throne, King Tut and his advisors changed the religion back to polytheism and returned to the old ways. The young king worked hard to restore the worship of their gods. Egyptian tombs were carved and painted with scenes of the afterlife. Art In History’s replica shows King Tut facing the goddess Isis, Mistress of the Sky, Governess of the Western Necropolis, and Anubis who governs the west, the great god who is in the place of embalming, Master of the Sky. Together they welcome the king into the afterlife.
