Howard Carter

British Egyptologist who discovered the tomb of Tutankhamun
With such evidence, as well as the sealed doorway between the two guardian statues of the King, the mystery gradually dawned upon us. We were but in the anterior portion of a tomb.More Howard Carter quotes [09/27/2011 11:09:12]
The news of the discovery spread fast all over the country, and inquisitive enquiries mingled with congratulations from this moment became the daily programme.More Howard Carter quotes [09/27/2011 11:09:13]
Here before us was sufficient evidence to show that it really was an entrance to a tomb, and by the seals, to all outward appearances that it was intact.More Howard Carter quotes [09/27/2011 11:09:58]
These ancient huts were soon cleared of the rubbish covering them. I planned them, and removed them for investigation below, which undertaking took until the fourth of Nov.
More Howard Carter quotes [09/27/2011 11:09:20]
As we cleared the passage we found mixed with the rubble broken potsherds, jar seals, and numerous fragments of small objects; water skins lying on the floor together with alabaster jars, whole and broken, and coloured pottery vases; all pertaining to some disturbed burial, but telling us nothing to whom they belonged further than by their type which was of the late XVIIIth Dyn. These were disturbing elements as they pointed towards plundering.More Howard Carter quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
