This storyboard does not have a description.
They,Howard Carter and Lord Carnarvon were looking for King Tutankhamen's tomb. The tomb was told to already be found, they did not believe it had been found. Their evidence was, one the pharaoh they found was buried at a later date, two the tomb was to small and insignificant for a pharaoh's tomb. So they started their search in the middle.
They excavated the all the tombs, and didn't find any sign of the tomb.They did leave one spot, it was in ruins and look like stone house that would have housed workmen. The workmen would have made King Rameses VI tomb because they lay in the same spot. After not finding the tomb Carnarvon wanted to give up but Carter didn't. So he decide to look in the huts. On November 1st 1922 the diggers started.
On the fourth day Carter saw 12 steps that lead to a sealed door way. Even though he was so excited he the diggers fill it in because Carnarvon was in England.Yet right away he sent a letter to him.
Two weeks later Carnarvon was there and the reopened the stairway. When they got to the door they saw it had Tutankhamens seal on it. Then they figured out it had been opened before and had been resealed. Even though they opened the doorway then they saw the passage was filled with stone. So, they picked up their tools and started digging. They came across another doorway and saw it had been opened too. Carter made a tiny hole in the doorway and saw a room with treasures you couldn't imagine.
Then he realized there was no coffin. Still the next day they broke down the doorway when they entered they saw another doorway it had also been broke into there was just a small hole sealed up whoever it was had been stopped. Then they went on in that room.
The tomb could be past the doorway. Yet, they did not open that door because they were not treasure hunters. They knew that the room had a museum full worth of treasures so they stayed.
