About this event
In 1922 the tomb of Tutankhamun was discovered at Luxor, the first known intact royal burial from ancient Egypt. The excavation by Howard Carter and his team generated enormous media interest and was famously photographed by Harry Burton. These photographs, along with letters, plans, drawings and diaries, are included in an archive created by the excavators and presented to the Griffith Institute, University of Oxford. To celebrate the centenary of the discovery, the Griffith Institute, in collaboration with the Bodleian Libraries, is hosting the exhibition “Tutankhamun. Excavating the Archive”, that displays a selection of about 150 objects of this archive. They present a vivid and first-hand account of the events and give an intimate insight into the records of one of the world’s most famous archaeological discoveries.
