The mummy of Tutankhamun crossing the Nile for the last time, Egypt, 1325 BC (1933-1934). The funeral bark is a copy of a boat which was kept at Abydos and specially dedicated to the use of Osiris. The discovery of Tutankhamun's tomb in 1922 by British archaeologist Howard Carter (1874-1939) was one of the most astounding discoveries in archaeology. Tutankhamun was a previously unknown pharaoh whose name had been eradicated from historical records by one of his successors because of his association with the heretical pharaoh Akhenaten, who was Tutankhamun's father-in-law. Consequently his tomb, uniquely, had remained undisturbed by grave robbers. A print from Wonders of the Past, Volume I, 1933-1934. (Photo by The Print Collector/Print Collector/Getty Images)
