Black and white stereograph slide, T238 from Tour of the World series, vol 5 and 6. Text on the back of the card reads: "Before us, in the wild and desolate valley of Biban-el-Muluk, lies the tomb of Tut-ankh-Amen, the uncovering of which proved to be one of the greatest archaeological discoveries of modern times. For forty centuries the mummy of this ancient Pharaoh lay hidden from the eye of man. But in 1922, after five seasons of unsuccessful search, Howard Carter, an American archaeologist associated with Lord Carnarvon, who had from the Egyptian government privilege of excavation, finally discovered the long sought-for tomb buried deep in the rock.
