Google has recently honors the Howard Carter on his 138th birthday, he was better known as an English archaeologist and Egyptologist known for having a primary role in the discovery of the tomb of 14th-century BC pharaoh Tutankhamun. He was the citizen of Britain, Kensington, London.
In 1899, Carter was appointed the first chief inspector of the Egyptian Antiquities Service (EAS). He supervised a number of excavations at Thebes (now known as Luxor) before he was transferred in 1904 to the Inspectorate of Lower Egypt.
Carter resigned from the Antiquities Service in 1905 after an enquiry into an affair (known as the Saqqara Affair) between Egyptian site guards and a group of French tourists in which he sided with the Egyptian personnel.
He died of lymphoma, a type of cancer, in Kensington, London, on 2 March 1939 at the age of 64.The archaeologist’s (natural) death so long after the opening of the tomb, despite being the leader of the expedition, is the piece of evidence most commonly put forward by sceptics to refute the idea of a “curse of the pharaohs” plaguing the party that violated Tutankhamun’s tomb.
