Howard Carter


138th Birthday to be exact!


An English Archaeologist and Egyptologist known for having the primary roll in the discovery of the tomb of King Tut, Tutankhamun.

View video of Howard and the opening..... watch to the end, it's worth it!

The Field Museum

I took the train
with my daughter and a one of my dearest friends

 one May
a few years back
and this is one of the places we toured!

Seeing the King Tut Exhibit was a bonus!

My first visit here, was during my 6th grade school field trip
from Lansing, Michigan
I took the train then too!

I wonder if someone will come along and dig up Howard Carters' grave in a couple of thousand years.

Karen S. said...

Alan, wouldn't that be something!

JJ said...

He had his ups and downs, but hung in there and enjoyed an illustrious career.

Relax Max said...

I wonder if Tut did? (Use the East Entrance.) :) That seems like nice train ride.

6th grade in Lansing? That sounds like another interesting story.

Karen this looks like an interesting place to tour, the train adds to the adventure from the sounds of it.

I was in Chicago the first of this week and took the train, too!

Oh Cool, I think they are having that right now at a museum in Houston, would have to go by bus, no trains. : )

When I read the story about Schliemann and his discoveries, I wanted to be an archaeologist; this did not work out I became a botanist!
What a find King Tut was!

If I had to guess where this was, I would have said New York but now I see it is Chicago.


Karen S. said...

Sage, Jeff we were there the last week of May, I'm not sure what the dates were that it ran. It's a trip we have to do again! There is so much to see in Chicago!

Hi Karen, first off, thanks for all the kind compliments you leave behind. And yes, editing is always hard...but it's a good skill to learn...not sure how well I've learned it. :)

As to King Tut, I saw the exhibit in SF and we were disappointed by it...we had just assumed that the most famous piece of all would be there, but it wasn't. I had loved loved loved Egyptology as a child.
