The first glimpse of Tutankhamun's tomb, Egypt, 1933-1934. Artist: Unknown

The first glimpse of Tutankhamun's tomb, Egypt, 1933-1934. The sight that met the eyes of Lord Carnarvon and Howard Carter when they broke down the sealed doorway which divided the ante-chamber of the tomb and the sepulchral hall of the departed Pharaoh. 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.

The 'Ram in a Thicket', from Ur, southern Iraq, c2600-c2400 BC. Artist: Unknown

Detail of the 'Ram in a Thicket', from Ur, southern Iraq, c2600-c2400 BC. One of an almost identical pair discovered by Leonard Woolley in the 'Great Death Pit', one of the Royal Graves in the cemetery at Ur. It was named by Woolley after the biblical reference in Genesis 22:13; God ordered Abraham to sacrifice his son Isaac, but at the last moment 'Abraham lifted up his eyes, and looked, and behold behind him a ram caught in a thicket by his horns: and Abraham went and took the ram, and offered him up for a burnt offering in the stead of his son'. The 'ram' is more accurately described as a goat. From the British Museum's collection
