Discovering King Tut

Here is an article on the discovery of Tutankhamun in the Valley of Kings in 1922 and in particular the opening of the boy kings burial chamber on this day 89 years ago. The article is a familiar story involving a most famous cast of Egyptologists.

The article goes on to mention the return in recent years from the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York 19 pieces from the tomb.
