Who was Howard Carter

  • Howard Carter was the one who made one of the most important archaeological discoveries, not only in Egyptian history, but also in the history of the antiquities of the entire ancient world.

  • He discovered Tutankhamun's tomb (KV 62) in 1922, and that was the first time that a tomb of Pharaoh was found full of treasures.
  • The reason why the cemetery remained without being stolen by thieves is that the tomb of King Ramses VI was directly above it.
  • The tomb was found after nearly 15 years, from constant searches.
  • Howard Carter died in 1939 of lymphoma, at the age of 64.
