The House of Carter

house of carter luxor

Howard Carter found his place in history as being the archaeologist discovering the legendary tomb of Tut Ankh Amon. The house where he lived and directed his excavations from has recently been bought by the authorities and painstakingly restored to its original state with the genuine furniture. The highlight of this little museum is a holographic display in which an actor re-enacts Howard Carter talking about the events leading to his fabulous discovery.
