” A Pale Green Mermaid Blog “

 

To celebrate the SNOW, PGM is presenting a series that will recreate Howard Carter’s walk through the first days of discovery and opening of King Tut’s tomb in Egypt…

it started with a seal –

 

 

This was all that lay between Tutankhamun’s treasures and the outside world.

The seal was stamped with the necropolis seal, consisting of a jackal over nine bound captives.  See detail below,

Once the seal was broken they entered the Tomb releasing air that was 3,000 years old.

 

 

 

To be continued…
