Tutankhamun’s tomb, identified a century ago on Nov. 4, 1922, contained a lot of excellent artifacts. But some of the pharaoh’s jewelry has absent lacking in the century because it was uncovered, irrespective of laws specifying that the artifacts in the tomb belong to Egypt. 

Some of this jewellery could have been taken out of Egypt by Howard Carter, the British archaeologist who led the excavation that uncovered the tomb. In analysis that will be introduced at a convention in Luxor involving Nov. 4 and 6, Marc Gabolde (opens in new tab), an Egyptology professor at Paul-Valéry College of Montpellier in France, recognized some of this lost jewelry and where by it might be. He examined illustrations or photos that photographer Harry Burton snapped of finds from Tutankhamun’s tomb in the 1920s and compared them to items located in museums and auction web pages.
