Tutankhamun exhibition opens in landmark first

In a landmark first for any exhibition in the capital, the artefacts from the tomb of Tutankhamun have gone on display to commemorate 100 years since their discovery which captivated the world.

150 pieces are on show that are nearly 3 and a half thousand years old and they will remain at the Saatchi gallery before they return to Egypt forever.

'Tutankhamun: Treasures of the Golden Pharaoh' will remain at the Saatchi gallery until the 4th of May next year, however you may have to dig deep into your pockets for a ticket.

The exhibition has a record-breaking price tag for admittance, set at 37 pounds 50, some have criticised the move saying it will naturally exclude many families from seeing the priceless artefacts.
