The entrance corridor

On November 4 and 5, Howard Carter discovered a stair well leading to what he hoped was a royal tomb. Although not entirely sure what lay beneath he telegrammed Lord Carnarvon and urged him to come quickly to Egypt. Upon Carnarvon’s arrival, excavation resumed on November 23.

Traces of evidence soon made it clear that ancient tomb raiders had twice broken into the tomb and twice it had been resealed. This concerned Carter and raised the possibility that this would be yet another plundered tomb.

Cartouchesof different pharaohs were found making it unclear who had been buried here. The carved wooden headof an, as yet unidentified king was discovered, damaged. However, it was the most intact artefact in the corridor. Elsewhere were several fragments of linen and broken vases, pots and other vessels.

On the afternoon of Sunday 26 November, Carter broke through a second sealed doorway and peered into a room. When asked by Carnarvon if he could see anything, he replied, ‘yes, it is wonderful’.
