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.
