Curse of Tutankhamen's Tomb: Did Howard Carter know about the tomb before he told Lord Carnarvon?

  • He discovered the tomb.

    Howard Carter was the archaeologist on the dig site and he discovered the tomb first. He notified Carnarvon and he and his family flew there to open the door and explore the tomb inside. There is no evidence that there was actually a Tutankhamen's Curse though. Carnarvon died from a mosquito bite and shaving infection and Carter went on to live for years.

  • I think no

  • Curses Take Time to Bear Out, If They Exist

    The thing about curses is that they only work if people believe in them. At the time of the tomb's discovery, there is no way Howard Carter could know about a possible curse in time to warn his financier. Lord Carnarvon died of blood poisoning after shaving his face after receiving a mosquito bite. Vanity killed the man, not a mummy's curse. He shouldn't have shaved that day.
