You’ve probably seen these photos of Tutankhamun’s excavation a million times already. But, whether you saw them in school, National Geographic magazine, books or on TV, they’ve always been in B&W. Well, some of the more iconic images from the discovery have been colorized by Dynamichrome for the exhibition The Discovery of King Tut which opens in New York City at Premier Exhibitions on November 21, 2015.


I’m normally not a fan of colorized photos, but these are different for some reason. They’re almost like Dorothy leaving her B&W Kansas and stepping into Oz for the first time or the doors opening up to Willy Wonka’s chocolate factory. Glorious eye candy.



Loads more very detailed photo's HERE

Indeed.
The photo's at the link are remarkably detailed you can just imagine the items being placed there.

Or "tossed there in a heap." Ancient people clearly didn't have the same sense of neatness and tidiness and order that we have today.

Is the first picture on the link the spot they are looking for Nefertiti's tomb? It looks like a bad plaster job.

They are hardly "tossed in a heap"
If they were then everything would be on its side.
They are definitely placed there, even if they're not up to your standards

Very cool.

I wish I could have been there to see such a remarkable discovery. Something that hasn't been touched for about 3,000 years.

And then suck up deadly mold? I'll watch outside in the tent!

Or the workers were said "quick throw that stuff in there and let's get back up top, it sounds like they are closing the tomb."

Did you see the picture of the wall with the gaurds either side? It looks like there gaurding the entrance to another room behind that obvious plaster job.

Look at those "things... wondrous things!"

Thanks... the state of preservation is ... pretty darned amazing, and then the objects themselves... pretty much the whole event of discovery and what was found is the height of romanticism. Cool beans.

And yeah... too bad about the curse or mold... or coincidence.

That has always made me question how exactly they knew what the effects would be (toxic mold etc) of a sealed chamber after thousands of years. Did they unseal ancient chambers themselves?

Or was it really a coincidence and they believed they had a protective spell on the chamber?

Or it could be that curses have some quasi-reality to them.

I have experienced far too many "mind-over-matter" events to completely feel comfortable poo-pooing it all as bunk... though most of it certainly IS bunk and most curses couldn't harm a sickly fly (nervously looks over shoulder and knocks on wood while circling himself with salt).

What about having that wooden chest to be a part of your interior... Wow, just imagine to have something in your living room that once was used by an ancient egyptian king

I only just saw these images! They are wonderful. My eye is trained to see in colour so I see so much more 'story' at each glance now. I can almost feel Howard Carters awe as he peered in to the tomb.



At first I could see nothing, the hot air escaping from the chamber causing the candle flame to flicker, but presently, as my eyes grew accustomed to the light, details of the room within emerged slowly from the mist, strange animals, statues, and gold — everywhere the glint of gold.


Howard Carter.

Too clean if you ask me... In other excavations I've seen all items has been covered in a thick grey "cement-like" dust layer that's gathered over millennias - strange that this tomb was so clean ...

I'm sure they sent a maid in there to dust before they took the documentary
pictures, and Howard Carter was right in that the gold is everywhere. The
life-like animals, striking in their form and function, and the solid gold mask
that covers his face.

Once he also remarked that Tutankhamun's chair was the finest piece of
furniture he had ever seen.

King Tutankhamun knife :




Looks like blood on the tip. They think it is made from
meteoric iron.

they mentioned grave robbers having been there before, i think that could be why things appear disheveled. everything else seems very intricate and could be interchangeable with items at ikea, the chests and chairs especially!

it almost looks like an ancient estate sale lol wow one could see how the ancient civilizations were so inspired by the egyptians as the egyptians were most likely inspired by those before them!
