Howard Carter- Carisma 6F

29 04 2016

So in humanities, we are learning about the Ancient Egyptians. We leant about a man called Howard Carter, who was the first person to find the mummy of Tutankhamun. So he was drawing some Ancient Egyptian hieroglyphics, until he was on his way to somewhere and his horse tripped on  stone. So he called a man called Lord Carnarvon, and they did a search but at the end they found out it wasn’t the tomb of Tutankhamun. So for may days, Howard Carter got a lot of men to do a search, but it took them days to clear steps to a tomb, which wasn’t Tutankhamun’s tomb. Days went past, and the search was still going on. Lord Carnarvon was gong to give up, but Howard said he was going to try and find it, with one try.  

So the search went on, but there was one boy who was sitting on the sand brushing away with his hand, but then he noticed that he had found a step. So he ran over to Howard Carter and told him he had found some steps. Once Howard got to the steps, he called Lord Carnarvon  over so they started to make there way down to the tomb. When they finally got down the steps, they had to make a small hole in a wall that they could fit through. When they got into the chamber, it was only the first chamber, which was the treasury room. So they started looking around, until Lord Carnarvon was at the back, and noticed that there was a door. So Howard went out and told a man that it was ok to leave them. Once he was gone he went back inside and made a hole in the door and climbed into the second chamber. They noticed that there was these two door (which is probably half the size of an actual door) with a sliding bolt on it. So Howard unbolted it and opened the doors. Lord Carnarvon an Howard Cater couldn’t believe what they were seeing. They had  found the tomb of Tutankhamun.
