An elaborately decorated miniature coffin, seen here on display at the Franklin Institute in Philadelphia in January 2007, is among the treasures found in King Tutankhamun's tomb that are now on a popular world tour. The tiny sarcophagus once held the mummified remains of the boy king's liver.
The tour, called "Tutankhamun and the Golden Age of the Pharaohs," recently left Philadelphia and will open again in London on November 15.
Today's move of Tut's mummy to a public display case is expected to sustain the young pharaoh's unrivaled popularity, said Egyptologist Kent Weeks.
"I don't know that Tutankhamun himself would have complained too much" about being moved, Weeks said. "At least we're all repeating his name."
