The Griffith Institute
and Oxford's Ashmolean Museum
have recently made the complete records of Howard Carter's excavation of the tomb of Tutankhamun
available on the web. You can browse the complete list of objects
as well as read all the original handwritten descriptive cards
and view any or all of Harry Burton's original photographs
(many taken in situ
and never before published). You can also read Howard Carter's complete personal field diaries
from 1922 and 1923. Although this is still an work in progress, its an easy way to lose a couple of hours for any MeFi Egyptology fans. with thanks to The Daily Grail
