Tutankhamun's replica tomb unveiled
http://english.ahram.org.eg/News/57959.aspx

Before the Conrad Hotel overlooking the Nile Corniche, where an exact replica tomb of the ancient Egyptian mysterious king Tutankhamun is located, thousand of journalists, TV cameras and photographers gathered to witness on Tuesday the unveiling of the tomb by European Commission Vice President Catherine Ashton and the Minister of Tourism Hisham Zaazou.

The tomb was immediately opened to public after its official inauguration within the framework of the two-day-long EU Task Force Conference on Tourism and Flexible Investments.

The replica tomb is a gift to Egypt from the Factum Foundation, Madrid, the Society of Friends of the Royal Tombs of Egypt, Zurich and the University of Basel, to promote the EU Task Force Conference taking place in Egypt as well as to celebrate the 90th anniversary of the discovery of the first signs that led British archaeologist Howard Carter to a full discovery of Tutankhamun’s tomb at the Valley of the Kings on Luxor’s west bank on 22 November 1922.

James Macmillan-Scott, president of the factum foundation said that the work undertaken in the tomb of Tutankhamun is an initiative instigated in 1988 by the Society of Friends of the Royal Tombs of Egypt with the full support of the Supreme Council of Antiquities (SCA), who have long supported the idea of building replicas of the royal tombs at Theban Necropolis that are either closed or need to be closed for their preservation. The first phase included the three tombs that are in danger due to the high rates of visitors; Tutankhamun, Nefertari and Set I.
...
In 2010 the SCA said they had selected the Carter's Rest House at the entrance of the Valley of the Kings for the permanent installation of the three replica tombs, however, the current Minister of State for Antiquities Mohamed Ibrahim clarifies that, actually, the Permanent Committee of Ancient Egyptian Monuments will select a location and that he doesn't foresee it will be at the Valley of the Kings entrance.

Replica of Tutankhamun's tomb unveiled in Egypt
http://www.dailymail.co.uk/travel/artic ... paign=1490

... an exact replica of the Boy King's final resting place was unveiled to the world, in a bid to protect the original.
The ancient burial chamber is a highlight of any trip to Luxor’s famous Valley of the Kings but could soon be closed to the public forever.
...
After being officially unveiled in the Egyptian capital yesterday, it will now be stored at the European Union embassy until the Egyptian Government gives the go-ahead for it to be transferred to the Valley of the Kings.
...
Factum Arte have even recreated a missing part of the tomb from photographs. Factum Foundation president James MacMillan-Scott explains: ‘It is in fact a better-than-exact replica because the missing piece – the bit that was knocked out when they opened the tomb – we have recreated. So in fact we have made it slightly more original than the original.’
...
He says: ‘Although there is an emotional response, as in "why would I go to a facsimile" people do because they get pretty much the same emotional experience if it is in the same space, the same environment, and they get the same sort of physical feeling of being there.

The re-erected tomb will stay in Luxor until the completion of the Grand Egyptian Museum (GEM) overlooking the Giza plateau, where it will eventually be transferred.

Er was al lange tijd sprake van dat men replica's zou maken van graven,die in een slechte toestand waren.
Hiermee gaat voor de tourist weer een stuk archeologie verloren.

Inderdaad jammer voor diegene die na ons komen en het met de replica moeten doen.

Ik meen dat Egypte niet de pretentie moet hebben om de originele graven af te sluiten voor de touristen en moet vervangen door replica !!!!
Dat doet me denken aan de tijd dat Zawi Hawass meende het monopolie te hebben over alles wat Egypte als kunstpatrimonium bezat :(

Als ik goed ingelicht ben, is deze replica opgericht bij Carter's House.

Egypt opens replica of King Tut’s tomb

http://english.ahram.org.eg/News/100253.aspx
The facsimile, in an underground chamber not far from the original in the Valley of the Kings, recreates the tomb down to minute detail. Spanish and Swiss experts recreated the elaborate wall murals using a 3D scanning technology. In the middle of the burial chamber stands a rectangular rock setting where in the original King Tut’s sarcophagus and mummy once rested.
In a hall between the burial chamber and an antechamber hang photos and explanations of the discovery of the tomb and its treasures in 1922 by British archaeologist Howard Carter.

...
For the time being, the original Tut tomb will remain open, but tourism authorities are aiming to reduce visitors and steer them toward the replica, said Mohammed Osman, vice president of the Chamber of Tourist Companies. Ticket prices for the replica will be 50 Egyptian pounds, around $7, half the price for visiting the original, he said.
...
Egyptian Antiquities Minister Mohammed Ibrahim and Lowe said facsimiles will also be made of the tombs of the pharaoh Seti I and Nefertari, a wife of the pharaoh Ramses the Great, both currently closed to the general public.
