The BBC has picked up the story (http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/middle_east/8342428.stm) that Carter's House at the entrance to the Valley of the Kings has been reopened as a museum to celebrate the 87th anniversary of the tomb of Tutankhamun. It's a very brief, rather dull article, of a subject which Jane has covered so much better on her blog

I ALMOST HAD AN ATTACK WHEN I SAW THIS POST. HOW GREAT WOULD THAT BE. I WAS IN EGYPT LAST YEAR AND IF ON;Y I HAD THE CHANCE TO SEE THIS HOME. I AM SADDENED TO HEAR THAR PERHAPS TUTANKHAMUN"S TOMB MAY NOT OPEN AGAIN AFTER RENOVATIONS. IT WILL HARDLY BE WORTH DOING IT IF WE CANT SEE IT, ALTHOUGH I GYESS IT PRESERVES IT. WHAT A WONDERFUL SIGHT IT IS INSIDE, AND LAST YEAR TUTANKHAMUN WAS TAKEN OUT OF THE COFFIN AND DISPLAYED UNDER A GLASS CASE . SOMETHING I WILL NEVER FORGET.
