A dagger buried alongside King Tutankhamun was made with iron from a meteorite, according to research published in the journal Meteoritics & Planetary Science.
Using X-ray fluorescence, a team of researchers, led by Daniela Comelli of the Polytechnic University of Milan, analyzed the blade and found that it has a similar composition to metallic meteorites.
