Bild från arbetet vid Tutankhamuns grav med Howard Carter i ledningen.
"The actual opening of the doors of the fourth shrine. Mr Carter is kneeling and Mr Callender standing. This was the decisive moment before the revelation of the sarcophagus; for the fact that upon the doors of this fourth shrine were depicted figures of protective goddesses, with outstretched wings, was evidence that the heart of the nest of shrines had been reached."
