19 Objects from Tutankhamun's Tomb to be Returned to Egypt

It has been announced that 19 items from Tutankhamun's tomb, which are presently in the collection of New York's Metropolitan Museum, are to be returned to Egypt. The returned to Egypt. The story has been covered extensively with a good coverage on Zahi's blog including pictures of the main objects. Thomas Hoving is usually creditted with identifying that these objects had come from KV62.

What has not been picked up in the press reports is the implication for the entry and clearance of KV62. There have been suspicions for many years that Carnarvon was involved in the illicit removal of items from KV62. Official acknowledgement that these items came from the time, will make it much harder to deny those suspicions. They centre on two separate allegations:

1) Did Carter enter the tomb before it's official opening and then re-seal it?
2) Did Carter set aside items while cataloguing the tomb?

We may never know.
