    That all stood like that for some three millenia until Carter and the fifth Earl of Carnarvon came along and dug it up… If they hadn’t, the world may never have found out about the boy king, or much of Egyptology as we have come to know it…

    To think of the painstaking work, patience, and planning that went into this endeavor–and all in the tremendous heat and dust! Really remarkable. I’ve been to the Valley of the Kings, and walked in awe down through some of the tombs…one of the planet’s great treasures.
