This is an old story re purposed for a new show as there are articles going back to 2012 in the papers on this murder. However the trial notes from the time of the attempt mention the snake poisoning plot only. Now I may postulate something. As the Egyptians did not mention defeats in battle may explain something about his death. One of his toes was chopped off prior to death then his throat slit to the bone. O wonder if he was in a chariot, chopped in foot dismounting him then finished off.

I wonder if Zahi will be back in the West Valley this coming excavations season? Anyone here anything? They mad such a hype on it last year.

Getty stabilises Tutankhamun’s tomb paintings
"As the news broke in March that recent radar scans had revealed two hidden chambers in the tomb of Tutankhamun, conservators from the Los Angeles-based Getty Conservation Institute (GCI), working with staff from Egypt’s Supreme Council of Antiquities (SCA), had just finished a five-and-a-half-week campaign to stabilise the tomb’s 3,500-year-old wall paintings. The Getty project is part of a long-term initiative that aims to serve as a model for future conservation projects in Egypt. "
