David Connolly's curator insight, June 1, 11:01 AM

The tomb of Tutankhamun was discovered by Howard Carter in 1922, but even now some of the amazing treasures it held are unknown to most of us. Decorated gold leaf-on-leather objects forms one such group which is currently undergoing restoration by an Egyptian-German team at the Egyptian Museum in Cairo.

The objects, which have never been adequately studied, were part of Tutankhamun’s war chariots, the trappings of the horses and the sheaths of weapons. Although they are not presently in good condition it is clear that they posses an unusual beauty.
