You’ll find no cause to tut at this trea­sure

A NEW in­ves­ti­ga­tion into King Tu­tankhamun’s tomb be­gan last week. Ever since Egyp­tol­o­gist Howard Carter, in­set, dis­cov­ered the 3,300-year-old tomb in the Val­ley of the Kings in Luxor in 1922, ar­chae­ol­o­gists have sus­pected other cham­bers were there to be found. Now dig­ging is un­der way that could un­veil the trea­sures of Tut’s wife, Ankhe­se­na­mun.

Some­what closer to home, the Lon­don apart­ment where e Carter (1874-1939) once lived is for sale — and it’s a trea­sure e in its own right. In Al­bert Court, Kens­ing­ton, it’s next to the Al­bert Hall. One of the first pur­pose-built man­sion blocks built in Lon­don, the build­ing was also used as an RAF base dur­ing the Se­cond World War. The stun­ning five-bed­room apart­ment, above, on the first and se­cond floors is su­perel­e­gant and comes with first-class se­cu­rity. It is on the mar­ket with Rus­sell Simp­son for £9.75 mil­lion.
