Caption: Howard Carter in Tutankhamun's tomb, illustration. British Egyptologist Howard Carter (1874-1939) began his career in Egypt as an artist in 1891 at the age of 17. From 1899 to 1905 he was the first chief inspector of the Egyptian Antiquities Service. From 1908 he worked on excavations funded by the English aristocrat Lord Carnarvon. It was on one of these expeditions that his most famous discovery was made in 1922, the tomb of Tutankhamun. This famous Egyptian pharaoh, a boy King, died in his late teens and remained buried in the Valley of Kings for over 3300 years. He ruled from 1333-1324 BC in the period of Ancient Egypt known as the New Kingdom. Tutankhamun's almost completely intact tomb made this a major archaeological find.
