In his tomb the findings were extraordinary. More than 5,000 artifacts were discovered and most became property to the Egyptian government, although many more artifacts were believed to be stolen previously by looters that raided the area. About a third of these artifacts can be found displayed in an Egyptian Museum located in Tahrir, Cairo. Some of the findings included six of King Tut’s very own chariots, his death mask which was mainly made out of gold, two gold daggers with one having a blade crafted out of a meteorite, three golden coffins nested amongst one another with the last containing his mummified body, and golden jars with the heads of Egyptian gods, such as Anubis, containing his organs. In our time, many of the found objects in his tomb have been moved into museums, however the pharaohs body remains in his tomb.

Even ceremonial items that pertained to him like thrones, statues, and jewelry were also found in his tomb.
