This was stated by Italian experts, surveying the subject.

The dagger found in the tomb of Tutankhamen, according to Italian scientists, is made of material of extraterrestrial origin. This is the conclusion of experts after a detailed examination of the subject, reports TASS.

One of the participants of the examination, a Professor of physics at Turin Polytechnic Institute Francesco Porcelli, noted that the controversy 35-centimeter blade was summoned immediately after the discovery in the shroud of the mummy.

It is known that the discovery was made in 1925 after the opening of the sarcophagus.

“Made of iron in Ancient Egypt, it was a little extreme. This material was prized more than gold. Unbelievable that no one has previously analyzed this alloy,” said Porcelli.

Mask of Tutankhamun was intended Nefertiti – the scientists

He also noted that the examination of the dagger, the researchers decided to conduct once in 2010 was the discovery of Kamil crater of meteoric origin. In one of the ancient papyri, Egyptologists have even discovered information on the “iron fallen from the sky”. But seriously on this version none of the scientists thought.

Earlier it was reported that in the tomb of Tutankhamen found a secret room in which is alleged to be the burial place of Queen Nefertiti.
