On November 26th, 1922, in the Valley of the Kings outside of Luxor, British Egyptologist Howard Carter lowered a candle into a room that had been sealed for over 3,000 years: after a seven-year search, he finally had found the intact tomb of Tutankhamun, the boy King. But it wasn’t until February 16, 1923 — one hundred years ago, this week — that King Tut’s burial chamber was unsealed. There were so many precious artifacts unearthed, it took nearly a decade to clear the tomb. Whether it’s King Tut, Cleopatra, the pyramids or hieroglyphics, there is something about Ancient Egypt that continues to capture our imagination and attention.
