4. Fun Facts
The Discovery of the Tomb of Tutankhamun
On November 4, 1922, British archaeologist Howard Carter and his team uncovered a step leading to the tomb of King Tutankhamen in Egypt's Valley of the Kings. Having searched extensively after World War I, and almost giving up Carter finally found the entrance near King Ramses VI's tomb.
On November 26, 1922, Carter and Lord Carnarvon entered the tomb by breaking the unbroken seal on the shrine of Tutankhamun's tomb untouched for 3,245 years revealing miraculously preserved chambers. The subsequent years saw a meticulous excavation, unveiling a wealth of artifacts, including a stone sarcophagus with three nested coffins, the innermost made of solid gold, housing the mummy of King Tutankhamen.

Discovered in 2009 near Hammerwich, United Kingdom, the largest Anglo-Saxon treasure trove was found by Terry Herbert using a metal detector in a recently plowed field. The hoard, dating back to the 8th century, included over 3,500 military, religious, and decorative items. The Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery, along with the Potteries Museum & Art Gallery, jointly acquired the hoard for £3.285 million under the Treasure Act 1996.
