Audio recording of Tutankhamun’s trumpets


(h/t: Sevaan Franks at A Blog About History)

Recently looted from the Cairo Museum during the recent uprising was one of Tutankhamun’s trumpets, found in his tomb when it was opened in 1922. In 1939 they were played for a BBC radio recording, which you can listen to here.

The audio recording is located on the right side about halfway down the page. Take a minute to listen to the music enjoyed by a king who lived 3000 years ago. This is why I love history.
