To see the ... mainframe?

 

King Tut's legacy has endured for centuries. Believe it or not, the mainframe had a part in preserving and disseminating that legacy.

 

From the 1950s to the 1990s, IBM worked with the Egyptian Ministry of Communications and Information Technology to catalog and index antiquities and historical information.
