Later this year Petrie Museum at UCL in London will have a similar exhibition to the one in Oxford, which will include a number of the Harry Burton photographs taken during the discovery. Some may remember a number of these photographs were on display at a exhibition of Burton's work in Cambridge a couple of years ago.

I understand that the British Museum are giving the centenary celebrations a no go, I suspect this may have something to do with the embarrassing situation it found itself in during their 75 year anniversary of the great discovery in 1997. A certain item that was on loan to the BM had to be removed and returned to its 'rightful' owner.

I was at the Petrie a couple of weeks ago.

There is an exhibition, commencing September, themed around the childhood of Tutankhamun and Egyptian children of his era. I didn’t notice any specific reference to the tomb discovery or Burton’s photos.
