Howard Carter, a British Archeologist, began searching for King Tutankhamun’s tomb in 1914.  8 years later on November 26th, 1922 he discovered the death chamber of King Tut, a virtually untouched 3,000 year old time capsule, filled with over 5,000 artifacts -- treasures of unimaginable value.  His extraordinary discovery in the desert canyon of the Valley of the Kings, west of the Nile, created a worldwide sensation that led to the rebirth of Egyptian Revival art, architecture and decorative items throughout the 1920s.
