Project Description: 

Tutankhamun: Anatomy of an Excavation is ambitious in its scope but simple in its aims: to make the complete records of Howard Carter's excavation of the tomb of Tutankhamun available on these web pages. It is astonishing, but no longer acceptable, that some eighty years and thousands of articles, hundreds of books, and dozens of exhibitions after the discovery of the tomb, this most famous event in the history of Egyptian archaeology has not yet been fully published. The documentation is presented in its original form and all, scholars, interested members of the public and school students, can consult it. The archive contains scans of Harry Burton's photographs with descriptions, transcriptions of Howard Carter's excavation and pocket diaries, scanned maps, plans and drawings amd transcriptions of various other notes and memoranda relating to the excavation.
