Tutankhamun’s treasure in Madrid
In 1922, archaeologist Howard Carter made the famous discovery of the history of Egyptology: the intact tomb of the young pharaoh Tutankhamun. Golden sarcophagi and shrines, carved furniture and jewelry charms…
From May 21 to October 17, in Hall 12 of the “Casa de Campo” you will be able to visit the burial chamber of the Pharaoh as part of a wonderful exhibition. No doubt it is a great chance to witness the original condition in which the tomb was found.
Intrepid explorer, Howard Carter and his benefactor, Lord Carnarvon uncovered Tutankhamun’s hidden tomb in 1922. At the tomb opening, Carter followed by Carnarvon, peered through the broken seal of the door stamped with a royal necropolis. When asked by Lord Carnarvon if he could see anything, Howard Carter responded, “Yes, wonderful things.”
For many years, Tutankhamun’s tomb was surrounded by mystery and rumors of a “Curse of the Pharaohs” (fueled by newspapers seeking sales at the time of the discovery), emphasizing the early death of some of those who had first entered the tomb.
I hope you will like it.
So say we all!!
