He made the archeological discovery of the century, unearthing the most fantastic horde of Ancient Egyptian treasures ever discovered. But did he also release an ancient curse that took his life?
Howard Carter will always be remembered for discovering the tomb of King Tut. It was the final result of over 30 years digging in the desert, braving the blazing sun and biting winds on the trail of the ultimate prize he knew was out there somewhere.
From his days as a student to the contentious and controversial years after the discovery, BIOGRAPHY® uncovers the true story of the legendary archeologist. We'll trace his long journey to find the tomb, chronicling the false steps and mistakes that nearly doomed his quest. Hear from historians who detail the many problems that dogged Carter afterwards, including bitter feuds with colleagues and personal heartbreak. And, of course, we'll hear all the speculation about the ancient curse that some say finally claimed his life.
Filled with footage and photos from his expeditions along with selections from his own writings, this is a fascinating portrait of the man who opened a window into the heart of an ancient empire.
