Title: 1922 - Discovery of Tutankhamun's Tomb

 

About: British archaeologist Howard Carter had been excavating for many years in the Valley of the Kings—a royal burial ground located on the west bank of the ancient city of Thebes, Egypt. He was obsessed with finding the undiscovered tomb of the pharaoh Tutankhamen,  who lived around 1400 B.C. and died when he was still a teenager. After years of searching, when Carter finally discovered the tomb and entered the interior chambers, he was thrilled to find it virtually intact, with its mysterious treasures untouched after more than 3,000 years.
