Pharaoh returns

  On the evening of November 26, 1922, archaeologist Howe Carter and his patron Sir Canaver entered the tomb of a young pharaoh who ruled the Eighteenth Dynasty of Egypt from 1352 to 1343 BC. On the night of the 28th two days later, Carter pried open the “treasure house” in the pharaoh’s tomb and found that it was full of gold treasures, and the end of the treasure house was connected to another room. The most amazing thing is that in this other room, although there are dazzling and noble treasures everywhere, it does not even have a door. Only at the entrance, stands the statue of the ancient Egyptian god Anubis— -He is a deity with the head of a jackal and a guide to death in ancient Egyptian mythology. He is lifelike, with his ears upright, squatting and standing like a wild dog, with his front feet stretched out, resting on a golden-rimmed wooden box, serving as a guardian.
  The discovery of the archaeological team caused a sensation in the world, and the members of the archaeological team were also immersed in the excitement of finding the treasure. But the excitement of the team members did not last long. Another event that was even more sensational in the world happened. The archeological team members died one after another. People said that they died under the curse of the pharaoh-because at the door of the tomb, ancient Egypt was used. The hieroglyph reads “The wings of death will cover all those who disturb Pharaoh’s peace”. The owner of this tomb was the 18th-century Egyptian pharaoh Tutankhamun who became famous in the world.
  ·Legend of Tutankhamun
  In early 2005, a car carrying the mummy of Egyptian pharaoh Tutan drove out of the “Valley of the Kings”. What is the reason why people are willing to risk “disturbing the dead of the Pharaoh”? It turned out that this was an archaeological project carried out by scientists from Egypt and the United States, aiming to use modern high-tech methods to determine the cause of death of Pharaoh Tutan, which is still confusing.
  Tut tomb found in
  many Egyptian pharaoh’s tomb had been plundered generations Tomb, but Tut’s tomb has escaped this fate. Why is this?
  First, he was buried in a relatively small main tomb. Before his death, the construction of the grand mausoleum had already begun. According to the plan, it is necessary to pass through a long corridor and many small stone chambers before finally reaching the main tomb. Probably because this magnificent mausoleum was still not built at the time of Tutan’s death, the young pharaoh was temporarily buried in a small burial chamber (this burial chamber may have been prepared for Minister Ai), He never moved again.
  About 200 years after Tutan’s death, when another pharaoh, the tomb of Ramses IV was built, people built some sheds on the land where Tutan was buried. As a result, Tutan’s mummy lay quietly in a forgotten, unmarked mausoleum, and finally escaped the hands of the tomb robbers.
  However, after the young king was buried for more than 3,000 years, he finally reappeared on November 4, 1922. At that time, when a boy who was in charge of water supply following the British archaeological team was digging a hole in the ground to store water tanks, he accidentally discovered the first step leading to Tutan’s tomb.
  After receiving the report, Carter, the 48-year-old captain of the British archaeological team, immediately led the team to excavate. Until the evening of the next day, they finally dug an underground corridor more than 3 meters high and more than 2 meters wide. The 12-step downward extending stone ladder extends to a stone door, which has been painted and used stone bricks. The built door was closed tightly. Carter wrote in his diary: “Full of uncontrollable enthusiasm and excitement, I carefully searched for things such as emblems on that door to verify the identity of the owner of this tomb, but I looked for No one’s name…I tried my best to control my urge to smash through this door and go in and explore.”
  Carter immediately sent a telegram to Lord Carnarvon, the patron of the archaeological operation in the UK: “We finally have one in this valley (that is, the Valley of the Kings, where there are many tombs of ancient Egyptian pharaohs). A huge discovery. This is a well-preserved grand mausoleum. Just like your last discovery, I now tell you the good news.” Three weeks later, 57-year-old Kanafon came with his daughter. At that time, Carter and his archaeological team had dug 4 more steps. There, they were delighted to find an emblem engraved with Tutan’s name. After opening the stone gate, they found a passage paved with gravel. Among the ruins full of flint and limestone, they found some broken earthen jars, vases and pots. Carter said in his record: “These are obviously just some trophies.” They were frustrated with such a discovery. But at this moment, they found a second closed stone gate at the end of the more than 10 meters long passage, which was also engraved with Tutan’s emblem. Carter drilled a hole in the upper left corner of the stone gate. He lit the candle and put his head in to probe. Carnarvon and his daughter, as well as the construction engineer who assisted in the excavation, stood by Carter. Carnarvon could not wait to ask: “What did you see?” Carter replied dumbfounded: “It’s so beautiful!”
  As the opening widened, a dazzling light suddenly flashed-Carter and Carnarvon found standing in front of them. A statue of a pharaoh with an eagle head logo, a pure gold throne, a reversible chariot and a gilded snake. “The whole tomb was magnificent and magnificent.” Carter later recalled that his first feeling at the time was that he had discovered “a treasure of a dying civilized era like an opera.”
  Carter spent nearly 3 months and only finished it. Organize and take photos of the items in the front hall of the tomb. It was not until mid-February 1923 that he dug the door leading to the main chamber of the mausoleum. Later, he found a solid gold wall with pictures, which shows that this is the outermost of the four nested coffins. This is an amazing building. It is about 5 meters long, 3 meters wide and 2 meters high. It is decorated with various decorative patterns: a winged goddess, a pharaoh and some text glueboards, all of which are enclosed in Tutan yellow In the sarcophagus.
  There is a long and narrow space between the nested coffin and the wall full of murals depicting the “life” of the pharaoh after his death. Carter is delighted to see an open door leading to another tomb full of treasures. At the door is guarded by a leaning jackal sculpture, which represents the god Anubis, a symbol of immortality. In the faint flash, Carter found a sarcophagus made of marble, which contained the remains of Tutan’s completely dehydrated liver, stomach, intestines, and lungs. In addition, there are many burial objects in the tomb, including 4 statues. Carter later wrote: “A group of 4 goddess statues, each of which is nearly 1 meter high. Around this group of statues, light is shining everywhere. This is the most beautiful monument I have ever seen… so charming, It makes people feel that every breath is filled with hope and admiration.”
  In fact, ancient tomb robbers broke into this tomb at least twice and took away jewelry and other items from the front hall. The two antechambers they entered, one of which was found by Carter, and the other slightly smaller, was an annexe attached to the tomb. Obviously, those tomb robbers also entered the main tomb of the tomb, only because they could not find the innermost tomb that protects Tutan’s sarcophagus, so they only took part of the things. Every time the tomb is destroyed by tomb robbers, the guards of the cemetery will seal the tomb again. According to the inventory records in the tomb, the tomb robbers stole about 60% of the jewelry. But there are still more than 200 pieces of jewellery preserved, because many jewels were placed in Tutan’s sarcophagus and embedded in the wrapper of Tutan’s mummy. In addition, there are hundreds of items, including furniture, weapons, clothes, games, food, and wine cans. All the things that were “enjoyed” by the Pharaoh after his death were well preserved.
