In King Tut’s Shadow

2 posts in this topic

If the breathless records from the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries are to be believed, it was an experience almost too marvelous to be grasped. Having cleared a portal back through the centuries, the dirt-caked explorer stepped through it, and there, amid the coded relics, found himself face-to-face with an eerily recognizable predecessor from distant antiquity—a mute figure, surprising in its completeness, long dead and yet in the immediacy and strangeness of the encounter, somehow very much alive.

In the early days of archaeology, there were two seminal cases...

1st Heinrich Schlieman (sp) and his ham handed (mis) handling of the excavations at Hisarlik (Troy)... This for all intents and purposes started

modern archaeology - or at least firing the publics interest in it... Thank goodness methods and controls have improved since then!

and 2nd, Carter's discsovery of King Tut's tomb... I can only imagine what it must have been like to look in through that small hole and see "Wonderous things'...

it's a pity that Davis is all but forgotten...
