The excavation was a decade for the discovery of the tomb of ancient Egyptian king Tutanekhamen. That time Harry Burton was imprisoned in his camera.
A recent exhibition created Harry Burton’s special photos in front of the public.
One of the most notable archaeological discoveries of the 20th century was the discovery.
The discovery of the tomb of 3,000 thousand years old Tutankhamen was a historic moment in itself. It was equally important for the captives to capture these moments in the camera and save them for generations to come.
These responsibilities were handed over to Harry Burton. They lifted more than 3,400 photos of this great discovery. Egyptian archeology-after Howard Carter achieved this success after ten years of hard work.
Many unseen photographs of Harry Burton are now being shown at Cambridge University.
Professor Christina Riggs is the first person to study all photos of Harry. Seeing printed photographs, negative and rejections, he said that many new aspects of this great discovery that took place in 1922 have come out.

Magic and Reality
Several photos related to this search were released in the 1920s, but these unseen photos have come up with new information.
Professor Riggs says, “These new photos have presented a new perspective of ancient Egypt, modern Egypt and archeology.”
With the help of Professor Riggs, this exhibition of pictures of Tutankhamen has been set up.
This photo given above is considered to be the time when the tomb of Tutankhamen was discovered, but in fact this photo was taken in January 1924, one year after the search.
The excavators had demolished the wall which separates the first room of the tomb from the grave. Carter was peeping in the grave.
Professor Riggs says, “After seeing this picture, we start thinking that Carter is looking at something amazing, something that is shining out.”
“But no ordinary human being understands that this whole scene is fake, Carter is admitting the imperial graves in between the door, people working with Burton should have planted the reflectors before taking pictures, from the back of the Carter The light would be falling on their face again. ”

Local people’s contribution
More than one hundred men, boys and girls were planted for excavation.
The picture shown above was taken in 1923. At that time, many people carried the royal goods out of the excavation to the city of Luxor, six miles away.
This valuables were later transported to the Cairo Museum through a large water vessel. It took only two days for this trip. At that time the sun’s pancreas was also increased. The temperature was more than 38 degrees centigrade.
Egypt’s most popular ancient artifacts
In 1925 Burton was imprisoned in this camera by the mask of precious stones and beautifully carved glass of Tutankhamen in his camera.
He took more than 20 photos from every angle of this mask. When the mask was found during excavation, at that time it had a thick layer of substance that was taken by Carter for weeks to remove it. This was the substance that was put on Mami at the time of religious rituals in ancient Egypt.

Some pictures were not shown to the common people because they were taken only for archaeologists.
The picture seen above is of the mummy form of Raja. This mask is of wood, with the handle of paintbrush on its forehead. Tape was used to hide this handle
Photos of the younger King’s head were not released anywhere until the 1960s. This was the first time seen in the large Thuat-theme show in Paris.

How Burton got this job
Harry Burton’s father used to serve wood Burton started photography in Italy while living in Florence. There he met a rich American man Davis.
Davis used to fund the excavation in Egypt. He used Burton to be in New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art. From where they were sent to Egypt for work
The picture of the boy wearing the above look had never seen anyone before.
Professor Riggs says, “You can see the nervousness of this Egyptian boy’s face.” He was wearing a heavy necklace from the tomb for a picture. ”
After several years, a local man Sheikh Hussein Abd al-Rasul claimed that the boy in this picture is same.
Today many prints of this picture look hanging in Sheikh Hussain’s guest house.
Professor Riggs surprises that children of six and seven years of photographs of the photographs look like they are working hard.

These photos had reached many people. They used to be used from postcards to cigarette packets
Professor Riggs says, “Very few people know that there was a dispute between the government of Britain and Egypt about the discovery of Tutenkhamen’s tomb.”
He explains that the discovery of the tomb of Tutankhamen was a great achievement of Egypt. Egyptian archaeologists emphasized that the things left from the tomb are allowed to remain in Egypt.
But in 1929 it became clear that no one else would be in the museum. This meant that Burton would not get the money for his work. Despite this, he gave some pictures to the Museum of New York.
