“Wonderful Things”: Howard Carter and The Discovery of Tutankhamun

Marking the centenary of the official opening of the burial chamber within Tutankhamun’s tomb, this talk tells the story of Howard Carter and one of the greatest archaeological discoveries ever made. The son of a Swaffham artist, Carter was inspired by visits to the Egyptian collections at nearby Didlington Hall and went on to forge a career in Egyptology, throughout which he doggedly pursued the tomb of the boy-king.
