About the Course

The course Howard Carter And The Search For Tutankhamun begins with a look at the early life and career of Howard Carter, before discussing his relationship with Lord Carnarvon and the commissioned work excavating in the Valley of the Kings.

Carter-and-CarnarvonThe discovery of the tomb is then reported on in detail, with a presentation on the findings from the four rooms of the tomb: the Antechamber, the Annexe, the Burial Chamber and the Treasury.

Finally, the legacy of Tutankhamun is considered, including information about the media frenzy over King Tut during the twenties, the infamous curse of Tutankhamun and a revival in interest in recent years.
