Hello everyone! Hope you enjoyed a fruitful Thanksgiving!
Today in my desk calendar titled “Survival History”, there was something that caught my eye right away!
British Egyptologist Howard Carter unearthed the chambers leading to the tomb of King Tutankhamun on this day in 1922. A large number of treasures and artifacts were catalogued and and sent to the Egyptian Museum in Cairo. According to Carter’s diaries, they came across “two strange ebony-black effigies of a King…gilded couches in strange forms…alabaster vases…a golden inlaid throne” and numerous other valuables, including the famous sarcophagus of the king himself.
Quite an interesting bit of information to keep your Monday moving along! 🙂
