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]
Towards sunset we had cleared down to the level of the 12th step, which was sufficient to expose a large part of the upper portion of a plastered and sealed doorway.More Howard Carter quotes [09/27/2011 11:09:56]
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]
Commenced operations in the Valley of the Kings.More Howard Carter quotes [09/27/2011 11:09:45]
