FACTUM ARTE - News: The Tomb of Tutankhamun - work now complete
On the 4th November it is the 90th anniversary of the discovery of the first signs that would lead Howard Carter to discover the Tomb of Tutankhamun. To cebebrate this event we are sending the facsimile of the Burial Chamber to Cairo to be included in an EU task force that takes place on 13th and 14th November. The Facsimile will be given to the Arab Republic of Egypt and, in line with the announcements made by the SCA in 2010, the aim is to install it in a site that has been designated near Carter's house at the entrance to the Valley of the Kings. The transport of the facsimile to Egypt is being paid for by the Ministry of Tourism of Egypt.
