    i notice that the text is describing the tomb of tutankhamun and it is using go vocab words and the paragraphs are short and shaprp.
    I think one section is in italics because maybe thats the most important thing you need to know and it tells us that it was one of the most prescious things for him/tutankhamun.

    i think?

    i notice the text describes things about tutankhamuns tomb and makes the paragraphs short and sharp so then it wont go into to much detail but atleast it would show us how precsious it is.
    i think one section is in italics because maybe it describe the value of the tomb to tutankhamun and how it is worth alot and precsious then anything in the tomb so its maybe describing the way how it was one of the most fabulous things in history or just to him.

    I notice about the text is there is puntion and I th8nk it is a non cronalogical report because it is in paragraphs and there is lots of exsplaing

    The reason why the word was in etalics. Is because they want it to stand out and for you to say it in a different w@y to use expression
