The Annex

Extract from Howards Carters Diary:
'With care Ld. C. and I crept under this strange gilded couch, and we peered into the opening. There we saw that it led into yet another chamber (afterwards called the Annex) of smaller dimensions than the Ante-chamber and of a lower level. '

mapThe annex also contained the objects that Tutankhamen would use in the after-life. It contained objects such as eating and cooking utensils, clothing, tools, and any other day to day things that he might need.

The Annex is considered a very important find because it gives us a look into the everyday life of a pharaoh. The objects in here were some of the most intact finds of this nature ever.
