On November 4th 1922 Howard Carter discovered the tomb of King Tutankhamun.

As they were clearing debris on November 4th their water boy tripped over a stone, it wasn’t a stone, but the top of some stairs.  They dug them out, it led to an old door with series of oval seals with hieroglyphic writing.

He sent Lord Carnarvon a telegram, and when he arrived on 26th November he made a small hole in the door and looked into the tomb.  Lord Carnarvon then asked, “Can you see anything?” Carter replied with the famous words: “Yes, wonderful things!”
