At the age of 17,he set sail for Alexandria. Egypt. By the 1920s ,he had become an explorer, searching for the tombs of the Egyptian kings. He found several important ones. Inside the tombs, he found jewels, gold and the preserved bodies of dead kings, These preserved bodies are known as mummies. In 1922, Howard Carter made his most amazing discovery of all, in the Valley of the Kings, in Egypt, He had received money from Lord Carnarvon, a British man who was very interested in Egypt. Carter’team was working at a place near a city called Luxor. There, they found the tomb of King Tutankhmun, It was the most important tomb that had ever been found. ‘ The tomb contained more riches, gold and jewels than any of us had ever seen before, as well as the mummy of the king, said carter. By the time we left, it was empty, We emptied the tomb of everything it contained-we were rich and famous right away.’ However, not long after them bomb had been opened, people in carter’s team began to fall ill and die strangely. Upon entering the tomb, Carter’ lucky pet bird, which had led him to the place, was eaten by a snake. Then ,a few months after Carter had opened the tomb. Lord Carnaron, who was also present when the tomb was opened. Fell ill with a fever and died in Egypt. At the moment of Carnarvons death, eht lights went out in Cario,the capital of Egypt. Back in England, his dog died at the same time . George Gould, a friend of Carnarvong’s, went to Egypt after hearing of his death. HE too visited the tomb, and had a high fever the following day. Twelve hours later, he was dead. Carter’ secretary, Richard Bethell. Died of heart touble four months after the tomb was opened. Arthur Mace, another member of the team, also died shortly after discovery Within sever year, 21 people who had something to do with the opening of the tomb died. Howard Carter, however lived on and died at the age of 65.Some people say the deaths were just coincidence. Others believe that they were the result of the mummy’ curse, which punishes those who enter the resting place of the dead. Howerver, still others believe that there is a scientific explanation. Inside the tombs, there are may viruses, When a tomb is opened, fresh air disturbs the viruses, If breathed in, ghey can result in illness or ever death.
