    Patience is a virtue — but it must have been wearing thin at Highclere Castle in the summer of 1922 as Lord Carnarvon pondered whether to allow Howard Carter one last season of excavation work in Egypt’s Valley of the Kings. He had already spent £5-6 million in today’s money, and was disappointed that his investment was showing such little return. But he rolled the dice one more time — and, 100 years ago this week, was rewarded with arguably the greatest ever archaeological discovery. Carter and his team had been investigating a line of rocks in front of the tomb of Ramesses VI when a young water boy stumbled on a stone that turned out to be the top flight of covered stairs. After partially digging out the steps, they came across a doorway stamped with oval seals and hieroglyphics. This was just the start of things to come. At that point, most of us would have dug out — or bashed down — the door to see what it was concealing, but Carter loyally deferred to his patron....
    More buried treasure may be found belong the tomb of  King Tutankhamun, according to new research on its hieroglyphs. Howard Carter become the world’s most celebrated archaeologist when he led the team that discovered the 3,000-year-old tomb in the Valley of the Kings in 1922. The Tutankhamun expedition, funded by Lord Carnarvon, found more than 5,000 objects. Treasures included the pharaoh's solid gold coffin, multiple thrones, furniture, food and wine. However, a newly revised book by fellow archaeologist Dr Nicholas Reeves has suggested that Tutankhamun’s tomb is only an antechamber. He has said that a larger sepulchre may be hidden behind it - leading to the resting place of Tutankhamun’s stepmother Queen Nefertiti. Dr Reeves told The Times: 'The greatest archaeological discovery in the world has got more to give - potentially something far more impressive than Tutankhamun’s burial. 'I’m suggesting that the most famous woman in the ancient world is also buried there.'

    Nov. 4, 2022, marks the 100th anniversary of the discovery of Tutankhamun’s tomb, and soon the world will be inundated with Tut mania: books, TV programs, museum exhibitions, and even an opera about the boy-king. “King Tut” is the most famous of all Egyptian pharaohs, and with good reason. First, there’s the discovery of his tomb—a saga made for the movies. The down-on-his-luck archaeologist (Howard Carter) teams up with a wealthy Englishman (Lord Carnarvon) and for years, they search the Valley of the Kings for the missing tomb—and they find it, packed with treasures. Today, it is still the only king’s tomb found intact in the Valley. It was so crammed with objects that when Carter first peered in and Lord Carnarvon asked him what he could see, the reply was, “Gold, everywhere the glint of gold.” What more could you want? Perhaps a curse. Soon after the tomb was opened, Lord Carnarvon died in Cairo, on his way home to Highclere Castle. Psychics came out of the woodwork saying they predicted death would come swiftly to those who defiled...
    EXPERTS are still baffled by Tutankhamun's history one hundred years after his mysterious tomb was uncovered. Historians remain divided about some key questions, such as what might be beyond the walls and even whether the tomb was meant for young King Tut. 1Howard Carter led the team that found Tutankhamun 100 years ago And archaeologists haven't even managed to completely understand all the thousands of treasures buried with him. Friday marks one hundred years since British archaeologist Howard Carter led a team into Tutankhamun's iconic resting place. The whole excavation took ten years to complete. Daniela Rosenow, from the University of Oxford's Griffith Institute told The Sun: "It was the first time a royal tomb was discovered almost intact more or less.

    Finding a Pharaoh Nearly 100 years ago, the tomb of Egyptian pharaoh Tutankhamun was discovered. Here’s a look at one of the greatest archaeological finds in history. Almost lost Tutankhamun was about age 9 when he became king of Egypt. He died after a 10-year rule (approximately 1332–1323 BC). His story would have been forgotten if it were not for the discovery of his tomb in 1922 by British archaeologist Howard Carter in the Valley of the Kings. It is the most intact Pharaoh’s tomb ever found and it held a wealth of objects that give a unique insight into this period of ancient Egyptian history. Carter’s excavation endeavors were running low on funding, but he asked for one more season from his financial backer, the Earl of Carnarvon. Lord Carnarvon granted him one more year. The first steps to the tomb were discovered on Nov. 4, 1922. The tomb Despite the riches it contained, the tomb of Tutankhamun, No. 62 in the Valley of the Kings, is quite modest compared to the other tombs in the area, both...
    It was the discovery of the century, and led Howard Carter in 1922 to become the world’s most celebrated archaeologist. But a BBC television documentary will tonight brand him a thief, claiming he took a priceless piece of jewellery after he found the tomb of Tutankhamun. The accusation against Carter comes just days before the 100th anniversary of the pharaoh’s final resting place being uncovered in Egypt’s Valley of the Kings. The programme, presented by Oxford art historian Janina Ramirez, focuses on a priceless jewel-encrusted collar that went missing shortly after it was discovered on the 19-year-old’s preserved body.

    Hieroglyphics hidden in the tomb of Egyptian Pharaoh Tutankhamen have strengthened the belief that the tomb could contain a door to the tomb of Egyptian Queen Nefertiti, according to a world-renowned British Egyptologist. Cartouches depicting Tutankhamen, known in the modern world as King Tut, being buried by his successor Ay were painted over cartouches of Tutankhamen burying Nefertiti, according to Nicholas Reeves, a former curator in the British Museum’s Department of Egyptian Antiquities. 'SOMETHING OUT OF AN INDIANA JONES MOVIE': ANCIENT BURIAL CAVE FOUND IN ISRAEL “Close inspection of Ay’s cartouches reveals clear, underlying traces of an earlier name — that of Tutankhamen," Reeves told the Guardian. "In its original version, this scene had shown Tutankhamen performing the funerary ritual for the tomb’s original owner, his immediate predecessor Nefertiti.” The new evidence supports the theory that Tut's tomb lies in the outer section of the larger tomb occupied by Nefertiti, which has still not been uncovered. On the tomb's north wall, the cartouches depict Ay holding a ceremonial adze and performing the “opening the...
    ARCHAEOLOGISTS have finally solved a mystery surrounding a dagger that belonged to King Tutankhamun 3,400 years ago. Fresh analysis of the weapon discovered in the pharaoh's tomb in 1922 reveals that it was forged from a meteorite outside of Egypt. 3King Tut's dagger was forged using iron from a meteorite The discovery backs a previous theory that the decorative shiv was gifted to King Tut’s grandfather from abroad. The artefact's origins and the way it was manufactured remain one of the great mysteries surrounding Tut's grave goods. It's unusual in that it was made using a metal that the Egyptians would not begin to smelt for another 500 years: Iron. In 2016, scientists determined that the chemical makeup of the 13-inch blade show that it was expertly crafted from an iron meteorite. Now a fresh analysis from a team at the Chiba Institute of Technology in Japan has revealed that the object was likely forged outside of Egypt. Researchers described their investigation earlier this month in the journal Meteoritics & Planetary Science. Most read in TechSUN STORM Huge explosion on the...
    THE long-lost face of an Ancient Egyptian Pharaoh has been revealed – and it might by Tutankhamun's father. Scientists have painstakingly recreated what they believe the late Egyptian ruler may have looked like 3,300 years ago. 3This may be the face of King Tutankhamun's fatherCredit: FAPAB, Sicily The remains of the mystery figure were found in Egpyt's Valley of the Kings in 1907. It became known as tomb KV55, and was found very close to the tomb of Tutankhamun himself. There are several theories about who the body inside the tomb belonged to. But whoever it may be, scientists have now managed to recreate the ancient face of the mystery pharaoh. The process took researchers at Sicily's FAPAB centre and 3D forensic artist Cicero Moraes months to create. They modelled muscles and ligaments onto the skull, then placed skin on top using computer-modelled values. 3The skull was modelled and then used to create a lifelike faceCredit: FAPAB, Sicily And it ultimately gives us a glimpse of a key figure in Egyptian history. There is one primary theory regarding who the skeleton...
