King Tut all fixed up

I love me some King Tut ...yup!

The golden mask of Tutankhamun is back on public display after a much-needed makeover.
The 3,300 year-old mask has returned to the Egyptian Museum in Cairo after being painstakingly restored following a botched attempt to glue its beard back on. 
The beard was hastily stuck back on to the mask after it was accidentally knocked during work at the museum in August 2014. At the time, the blue and gold braided beard was glued back on with the wrong adhesive, damaging the priceless relic and prompting uproar among archaeologists.
