King Tut's Cache
Photograph by Kenneth Garrett

Precious in its own right, a small ivory jewel box bears the name of King Tutankhamun beneath the knob on its front panel. When British archaeologist Howard Carter found King Tut's tomb in 1922, the box was empty—its contents had probably been looted in antiquity—but an inked line on the lid says it once held some of the young ruler's rings.
