The origin of the material used to craft a dagger buried alongside the mummy of Egyptian pharaoh Tutankhamun is not of this world, researchers say.

“Our finding confirms that excavations of important burials, including that of King Tutankhamun, have uncovered pre-Iron Age artifacts of meteoritic origin,” the authors wrote in their study.

In the new study, researchers found that the dagger’s composition of iron, nickel and cobalt matched known meteorites found within 2,000 kilometers around Egypt’s Red Sea coast. This “strongly supports its meteoritic origin,” they wrote in their findings, and the Egyptians likely knew they were using extraterrestrial material.
