Discovering Tutankhamun

For many people the name Tutankhamun embodies the glories of ancient Egyptian civilisation. Perhaps an insignificant ruler in his own day, the discovery of his tomb by Lord Carnarvon and Howard Carter in 1922 transformed Tutankhamun into a modern icon.

The excavation of Tutankhamun's tomb was a model of archaeological practice for its time and the detailed records - now housed in the Griffith Institute at the University of Oxford - provide a unique insight into that process.

This is the story of the discovery and recording of the contents of the tomb, its impact on popular culture, and the ongoing attempts to understand Tutankhamun and his world.
