Description:
Howard Carter (1874-1939), Figure of a Horus Falcon, signed and dated 1901, watercolour, 21 x 18cm.; 8.25 x 7in. * Carter began his archaeological work in Egypt in 1891, at the age of 17, after his father had found him a job as an artist for an archaeologist. There he worked on the excavation of Basi Hassan, the gravesite of the princess of Middle Egypt, circa 2000 BC. Later he was to come under the tutelage of Flinders Petrie. In 1899, he was offered a position working for the Egyptian Antiquities service, from which he resigned as a result of a dispute, in 1905. After several hard years, Carter was introduced, in 1907, to Lord Carnarvon, an eager amateur who was prepared to supply the funds necessary for Carter's work to continue. Soon, Carter was supervising all of Lord Carnarvon's excavations. Lord Carnarvon financed Carter's search for the tomb of a previously unknown Pharaoh, Tutankhamen, whose existence Carter had discovered. On 6 November 1922, Carter found Tutankhamen's tomb, the only unplundered tomb of a Pharaoh yet found in the Valley of the Kings, near Luxor, Egypt. On 16 February 1923, Carter opened the burial chamber and first saw the sarcophagus of Tutankhamen. After cataloguing the extensive finds, which was completed in 1932 due to the cornucopia of treasures and artifacts excavated Carter retired from archaeology and became a collector. He spent his later years working in museums and even toured the US giving lectures on Egypt and Tutankhamen, contributing to the nation's interest in the region.

Footnotes

Howard Carter first visited Egypt in 1891, at the age of seventeen, and the following year was invited to join Flinders Petrie during his excavations at El-Amarna. In 1900, Carter was appointed Chief Inspector of Antiquities to the Egyptian Government, but was later forced to resign in 1905, following a labour relation dispute.

In 1909, Carter began work with the Earl of Carnarvon who had decided to finance some archaeological work in Egypt. In 1914, Carnarvon managed to secure a fifteen year concession to excavate in the Valley of the Kings. Initially the results were disappointing but on 4 November 1922 the first steps leading to the tomb of Tutankhamun were discovered.

Now known to contain sixty three tombs and chambers, the Valley of the Kings is the principal burial place of the major royal figures and powerful nobles of the New Kingdom. Standing on the west bank of the Nile within the heart of the Theban Necropolis, the Wadi consists of two valleys, the East valley, where the majority of the royal tombs are situated and the West valley.

The area has been a principal site for archaeological and Egyptological exploration since the end of the 18 century. However it is largely due to the discovery of Tutankhamun's tomb, and the accompanying rumours of the Curse of the Pharaohs, which made it one of the most famous archaeological sites in the world.

In 1979, the Valley of the Kings became a World Heritage Site, with exploration, excavation and conservation still continuing into the present day.
