The Discovery of the Tomb of Tutankhamun and Exhibiting Its Treasures


Not long after the young king died, around 1332 BCE, his name and reign fell into obscurity for more than 3,200 years. 

That changed, however, on 4 November 1922, when Howard Carter located this royal burial in the Valley of the Kings.  

Now, Tutankhamun's name, history, and treasures are known worldwide.  How did it happen?
