100 YEARS OF TUTANKHAMUN

Post by HEPZIBAH »

Most people know that my interest in Egyptology is very limited. However, as it is the 100th Anniversary since the discovery of the tomb of Tutankhamun, I thought I'd watch at least one of the many videos there are related to the topic.
I've ended up watching one by Curtis Ryan Woodside 100 YEARS OF TUTANKHAMUN: Egyptologists Share Their Thoughts is different to most of them.



Just a personal note, I have always thought it grossly unfair that Carter, and Lord Caernarvon, got/get all the credit for finding the tomb. The dozens of Egyptians that worked long hours doing all the donkey work never, or seldom ever, get a mention.

Update. Although the video was made very recently, Curtis Ryan Woodside is less likely to be instantly recognisable in his next production. He has had his flowing locks cropped back very short.
