The answer might surprise you!
In January 1924, Howard Carter, the man who discovered the tomb of Tutankhamun in the Valley of the Kings, removed the doors of the great outer gilded shrine that almost filled the burial chamber.
Harry Burton, the team's official photographer, captured the moment dramatically. Here Carter is shown gazing through the opened doors of Tutankhamun's second shrine, his face apparently illuminated – almost dumbstruck – by the glow of treasures that lie within, as he alone sees what is still hidden from our view.
Well, that's what Burton wanted you to think.
Inside the giant outer shrine was a second gilded shrine, with a seal securing its double doors. When the seal was cut and the doors opened, a third shine appeared. Beneath that, Carter would later discover Tutankhamun's great sarcophagus.
This picture, in fact, was carefully constructed by Harry Burton, his flood lamp positioned to provide that golden glow of hidden treasure. In reality, Carter was looking at the closed doors of the third shrine, less than 30 cm beyond the open door.
This image was carefully stage-managed by Burton to tantalise the public, eagerly waiting for news from Tutankhamun's tomb. They may not have had Photoshop in 1924, but not every photo was 100% genuine either.
