For seven years Howard Carter had searched for a royal tomb which he was convinced lay undiscovered in Egypt's Valley of the Kings. In 1922 Lord Carnarvon, who was backing the venture, reluctantly agreed to finance him for one final season. On November 4th, Carter arrived at the site for the second day of the final dig. His workmen were waiting for him in expectant silence - they had uncovered the top of a flight of steps leading down into the earth. So began one of the most thrilling archaeological adventures ever: for the steps were the entrance to the only royal tomb ever found intact in Egypt. Howard Carter had discovered the tomb of Tutankhamun, who had lain virtually undisturbed for over 3000 years. This portfolio contains Broadsheets: Gift of the Nile, Who was Tutankhamun, Burying a Pharaoh, Finding the Tomb. There are also many primary source documents - notes from Carter, letters, newspaper accounts, paintings from the burial chamber, photos of some of the treasures, and much more. There is also a reproducible activities booklet.
