The Search for Tutankhamun: Howard Carter's records of the five seasons of excavations, financed by Lord Carnarvon, in the Valley of the Kings 1915 - 1922

"The website demonstrates that the discovery of the tomb of Tutankhamun by Howard Carter in November 1922 was not accidental but the result of a combination of a well-reasoned systematic search and exceptional archaeological intuition. It is remarkable that Carter''s inclination was always to return to the area where the tomb was eventually discovered."
