Today is the anniversary of the discovery of the tomb of King Tutankhamen, one of the most important archaeological discoveries of modern times. On November 4, 1922, more than 3,200 years after King Tut’s reign, British archaeologist, Howard Carter, discovered one of the only unplundered royal tombs in the Valley of the Kings, Thebes (modern day city of Luxor), Egypt.
