Tut's sling

  Interesting thing at the Griffith institute of egyptology in England.
Seems that there were 2 slings of woven linen found by Howard Carter in Tut's tomb. They are in reasonable shape.
  They can be seen at www.ashmol.ox.ac.uk/griffith html    picture 586y.
  Why has no one known about this?
