Tutankhamun excavation archive put online

The entire archive of material relating to the King Tutankhamnun excavation by Howard Carter in 1922 has been put online. [Thx Ashley] ...one of the real curses of Tutankhamun, from Dr Malek’s point of view, was the failure of Egyptologists to publish the discovery in its entirety. Dr Malek said:

Did Howard Carter steal from King Tut’s tomb?

Objects found in many museums today have been found to have belonged to Tutankhamun's treasures, prompting some to speculate that Howard Carter illegally smuggled them out of the country. The most recent example is a small ushabti, or servant for the dead, made of white faience and standing in the Louvre.
