An Egyptologist I talked to while on my trip told me the golden shrines held the confessions of the priests of Amun on how they murdered Tutankhamun. I had a hard time believing this and when I asked why this wasn't widely known he just shrugged and said some people are keeping it from the press.

Does anyone know what the shrines actually talk about?

See : The shrines of Tut-Ankh-Amon / Texts transl. with introd. by Alexandre Piankoff. Ed. by N. Rambova. - New York : Pantheon Books, 1955. - XXI, 149 p., 64 pl. - Egyptian religious texts and representations ; 2 - Bollingen series ; 40,2.
I have an inexpensive paper-back-edition by Harper & Row, New York (1962).

Greetings, Lutz.

Ha! Yes, I admit I was scratching my head over a few things he said. And I started out really liking him, too.

Thank you for the reference! I'm going to look into that.
