Popular Post Eldorado Posted February 18, 2022 Popular Post #1 Share Posted February 18, 2022 A team of researchers recently X-ray scanned an iron dagger found in the tomb of Tutankhamun to figure out how the object, the metal of which came from a meteorite, was made. They suspect the dagger was created through low-temperature forging—but they don’t think it was crafted in Egypt. When archaeologists entered Tutankhamun’s burial chamber in the Valley of the Kings in the 1920s, they found a foot-long dagger among the splendor entombed with the pharaoh. Its blade was made of iron, a perplexing discovery considering the Iron Age didn’t kick off until a century after Tut’s death. MSN 11 Top Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
