King Aspelta's Burial

Here is an exhibition on the burial of the Nubian King Aspelta.

The king's burial was uncovered by Dr. George Reisner at the beginning of the 20th century and thankfully because the ceiling in the outer chamber had collapsed the tomb contained a good assortment of valuable objects some of which are in Boston's Museum of Fine Arts.
