    Read th text about Tutankhamun.Are the sentences 6-10 Right or Wrong?If there is no enough information to answer "Right" or "Wrong" , choose " Doesn't say".  Tutankhamun was probably born at Akhetaten which was the capital city of Egypt. He was born in about the year 1346 BC.He became pharaoh at the tender age of nine in 1337 BC and reigned during the 18th Dynasty when the Egyptian Empire was at its height. He reigned from about 1337 to 1328 BC.His tomb was discovered by a team of British archaeologists in 1922, nearly 3000 years after his death.The reason that Tutankhamun is so well known today is that his tomb, containing fabulous treasures, was found early this century (1922) by British archaeologists Howard Carter and Lord Carnarvon.The tomb of Egypt's boy-king Tutankhamun was discovered on November 4, 1922 by English archaeologist Howard Carter. Howard Carter was born in 1874 in Norfolk, England. His father named Samuel Carter was an artist who taught Howard Carter the fundamentals of drawing and painting.Several finds made in the Valley of the Kings over the years led Howard Carter to believe that the king was still somewhere in the Valley.Carter believed he found clues to Tutankhamun in the discoveries made by Theodore Davis. Davis had found a cup and other fragments bearing the name of Tutankhamen and his queen.He was buried in a hastily prepared tomb in the Valley of the Kings at Thebes, the traditional burial place of his predecessors. The person responsible for his burial, and shown on one of the walls in Tutankhamun's tomb, was Ay who succeeded him on the Egyptian throne.
