In 1907 George Herbert, 5th Earl of Carnarvon, hired an Egyptologist and archaeologist Howard Carter, that he has directed excavations in the valley of the Kings.
Long searches have not brought results, finally, in 1922, Herbert said that the latest season of excavations of the finances and closes the project. Urgently needed breakthrough. Carter returned to the excavations in the previously abandoned spot. November 4, 1922, his team discovered carved into the rock step, and by the end of the next day dug up the ladder entirely. Carter telegraphed Lord Carnarvon, imploring him to come immediately. On November 26, Carter and Carnarvon opened a small hole in the corner of the door, standing at the end of the stairs. He lighted a candle and looked inside. “At first I could not see the flame of the candle flickered from a hot air escaped from the chamber. But as soon as my eyes adjusted to the light, slowly began to show the details of the room, strange animals, statues and gold – everywhere the glint of gold”. – Howard Carter.
