S7E3.5 - Overheard on Greeking Out - The Hole Where King Tut’s Heart Used to Be

This is a kid-friendly episode of Overheard at Nat Geo! We encounter descriptions of mummification, a game show, lots of Black Goo, the aftermath of the Amarna period, and a missing heart! We dig into why ancient Egyptian King Tutankhamun’s heart is missing from his tomb and what archaeologists have learned a century since the discovery of the young pharaoh’s tomb. One hundred years since the discovery of King Tutankhamun’s tomb, archaeologists are still puzzling over the mystery of why his heart is missing. In ancient Egyptian religion, the heart is thought to be the seat of intelligence and key to the afterlife–when a person dies, it’s weighed against a feather to determine where the soul goes. We’ll head into National Geographic Museum’s King Tut exhibit with archaeologist-in-residence Fred Hiebert to hear his take on what happened to Egypt’s boy king and hear from mummy expert Salima Ikram about how recent excavations of the tomb are helping scientists get closer to the answer.
