The Learning Channel recently aired a new Egyptian program with new computer graphic representations of the tomb. It featured the interesting news that FBI crime scene photography which allows detectives to photograph the crime scene in 3-D dimensions is now being used in the KV tombs to give better representation of how they are situated. This includes full artistic and item information of objects on the tomb walls and within the tombs themselves. They said that what would take 15 years to individually photograph and setup is now taking around 5 hours. Impressive. They intend to make it accessible via the Internet, but whether or not the average individual will have access to these or if this is for scholar or museum use, I have no idea. However, I'm willing to pay $200 a year to be able to visit the Valley of the Kings without the rest of the tourists via cyberspace, as the odds of me actually getting to Egypt is slim. The Learning Channel has various Real Audio Player or Media Player video clips from the show, including a CGI (computer graphic interface) clip of Tut's tomb. It's not much at the moment (mostly spins around the site underground to show you the tomb's size, depth and proximity underground to other tombs) but it's still worth a look. The URL can be found below and will become part of the Resource area as well. I could not download the video so hopefully they'll leave it up on their website.

- Tutankhamun's Trumpet sound. This file is the actual recording made of the blowing of one of the battle trumpets found in Tutankhamun's tomb. This program is an executable and very excellent. It has information regarding the recording and setup by the BBC in 1939 of the trumpet as well as the sound file itself. Kudos to Utrecht University in The Netherlands for this excellent program. Below is the .exe and .zip file.
