Inside Tutankhamun’s Tomb

Documents from Oxford University’s Griffith Institute which shed light on the discovery of Tutankhamun’s tomb have gone on display to the public, many for the first time in their history. The items, including paintings, journals, maps and photographs, are part of the Ashmolean Museum’s summer exhibition, Discovering Tutankhamun, which opens today (24 July). Alongside ancient artwork and artefacts, they reveal the story of one of the most significant archaeological discoveries of the 20th century, and the storm of public enthusiasm which it sparked in the 1920s.
