The Discovery of King Tutankhamen’s Tomb


Everywhere the glint of gold!” was the description of archaeologist Howard Carter, as he peered into the darkness of the tomb of King Tutankhamen, the first person to do so in over 3,000 years.  Politics and principle, professional rivalry and personalities clashed in the glare of gold and the dust of history.  We explore the tomb and its mysteries through the eyes of Carter and his photographer, and supplement the nearly century-old story of the unearthing of the tomb with the latest discoveries about King Tutankhamen, his tomb, and his death.
