The first glimpse of Tutankhamun's tomb

The first glimpse of Tutankhamun's tomb, Egypt, 1922. The sight that met the eyes of Lord Carnarvon and Howard Carter when they broke down the sealed doorway which divided the ante-chamber of the tomb and the sepulchral hall of the departed Pharaoh. The discovery of Tutankhamun's tomb in 1922 by British archaeologist Howard Carter (1874-1939) was one of the most astounding discoveries in archaeology. Tutankhamun was a previously unknown pharaoh whose name had been eradicated from historical records by one of his successors because of his association with the heretical pharaoh Akhenaten, who was Tutankhamun's father-in-law. Consequently his tomb, uniquely, had remained undisturbed by grave robbers. A print from Wonders of the Past, Volume I, 1933-1934. (Photo by The Print Collector/Print Collector/Getty Images)
