A three-day conference will host on Friday a large number of local and international Egyptologists and scholars from all over the globe to discuss King Tutankhamun and his treasured funerary collection, Egypt’s Minister of Antiquities Khaled El-Enany told Ahram Online on Thursday.

Tarek Tawfik, the Grand Egyptian Museum (GEM) general supervisor, said that the GEM’s visitors’ centre will host the conference for the first two days, while the third day will be held at the National Museum of Egyptian Civilization (NMEC) in Fustat on 8 May.

Tawfik said that a number of scientific lectures will be delivered about King Tutankhamun's costumes and jewellery, and a review and discussion will take place on the latest results of the recent radar scan survey carried out on his tomb in Luxor.
