Gaston Maspero was a French Egyptologist that, along with his partner, Howard Carnahan, found the tomb of the famous King Tutankhamen in 1922 A.D.


Behind the Scenes

The novelisation of The Mummy Returns refers to Maspero as "Sir Gaston Maspero": the real Gaston Maspero was never knighted and was dead for six years before the given discovery of Tutankhamen's tomb in the novel.
