Everywhere the Glint of Gold:
King Tutankhamun at the Winter Palace
by Kathleen Sheppard
Many people know parts of the story of the discovery of King Tutankhamun’s tomb in Egypt’s the Valley of the Kings in 1922. It was, and still is, sensationalized the world over. There was the thrill of discovery, the “glint of gold”, and rumors about a mummy’s curse. There was, and still is, a lot of conflict surrounding the discovery itself. To whom did it belong? Where should the artifacts go? Who gets to decide?
Kathleen Sheppard, Associate Professor at Missouri S&T in Rolla, Missouri, studies the history of archaeology in Britain and the United States. She is associate editor of the Bulletin of the History of Archaeology and a contributing editor for Lady Science.
