It’s easy to be struck by the splendour of the reconstructions on which the exhibition is based. But it also imparts a mouthwatering sense of discovery, as experienced by archaeologist Howard Carter – the first pair of eyes to see the tomb in over 3000 years. Holding a lit candle to a small incision in the tomb, he was asked, “Can you see anything?”
“Yes” He answered, “Wonderful things.”
