Chemical Analysis of Wine in Tomb of Tuthankhamun
"Spanish scientists have developed the first technique that can determine the color of wine used in ancient jars. They analyzed residues from a jar found in the tomb of King Tut and found that it contained wine made with red grapes." This is the first major project carrying out chemical analysis in the tomb, and the results are to be published in the journal Analtyical Chemistry.
