Pictures: Historic Tutankhamun photo treasures unearthed

Friday 20th March 2009

A series of historic 'snapshots' documenting activity around the tomb of Tutankhamun, shortly after it was discovered in the early 1920s, will be revealed at auction on 31 March.

The photos have not been published before, according to auctioneers at Bonhams, which plans to sell the collection in London on 31 March.

Tutankhamun's Egyptian tomb was discovered by British archaeologist Howard Carter in 1922.

'We are not sure who took the photos. There are around 30 or 40 in a file,' a Bonhams spokesman told Amateur Photographer this morning.

The treasures - which include letters and papers leading up to the discovery - hail from the collection of Egyptologist Rex Engelbach.

Engelbach was the official supervisor to Carter, and Lord Carnarvon who financed the project.

The collection is expected to fetch £2,000-4,000.
