    In 1907, Egyptologist and archaeologist Howard Carter was hired by George Herbert, the 5th Earl of Carnarvon to oversee excavations in Egypt’s Valley of the Kings. Carter had built a reputation for scrupulously recording and preserving discoveries.

    Carter searched the valley for years with little to show for it, which drew the ire of his employer. In 1922, Lord Carnarvon told Carter that he had only one more season of digging before his funding would be ended.


    On Nov. 4, 1922, his crew discovered a step carved into the rock. By the end of the next day, a whole staircase had been uncovered. Carter wired Carnarvon, imploring him to come at once. With Carnarvon at his side, Carter chipped open a small breach in the corner of the doorway at the end of the stairs. Holding a candle, he peered inside.


    The team had discovered the tomb of Tutankhamun, the boy king who ruled Egypt from about 1332 to 1323 BC.



    Howard Carter, Arthur Callender and an Egyptian worker open the doors of the innermost shrine and get their first look at Tutankhamun's sarcophagus.

    Carter, Callende, and two workers remove the partition wall between the antechamber and the burial chamber.

    Lord Carnarvon, financier of the excavation, reads on the veranda of Carter's house near the Valley of the Kings.

    I was thinking the same thing. They took all this time to make these intricate and elaborate tombs and just said "fuck it, I'm done" and just started throwing shit in there.

    It's doing good. Just have to take it easy and can't go crazy on it. Was busy recently doing a documentary for a friend he's been working on for over a year. But here I am. :)
