    1922: TUTANKHAMEN'S TOMB IS OPENED

    In
    1922, British archaeologist Howard Carter opened the tomb of the
    ancient Egyptian "boy king" Tutankhamen. It was the first tomb to be
    found that had not been raided by thieves since it was sealed over
    3,000 years ago. Among the remarkable objects found inside were a gold
    throne, couches, chariots, statues and priceless jewellery. Carter also
    found the mummified body of the teenage king lying inside a solid gold
    coffin and wearing a beautiful, life-like solid gold mask.
