The man who really found Tutankhamen

"For the past 36 years journalist and author Desmond Zwar has shared a great secret: that it was not archaeologist Howard Carter who was responsible for the discovery of Tutankhamen's tomb, but a humble British corporal whose very presence on the site had to be kept confidential; who in the last days of the dig took a photograph that changed history". This article claims that Richard Adamson, a 23 year old spy who infiltrated the Wafdist party, was responsible for the initial find of Tuthankhamun's tomb.
