Exact copy of Tutankhamun's tomb built

An exact copy of Tutankhamun's famous tomb has been built in Egypt, to protect the original.

The ancient tomb was discovered in 1922 by British archaeologist Howard Carter.

It stunned the world because it was in almost perfect condition, but now the number of people visiting is causing its delicate walls to fall apart.

Now there's a plan to save the tomb by building an exact copy using laser scanners and 3D printers.

It's hoped that tourists will go and see the copy, instead of the fragile original.

But will visitors want to see a fake? Watch Nel's report to see more.
