Howard Carter and Tut’s Tomb


Howard Carter peers into the greatest archaeological discovery of the 20th Century. To see this moment in history reminds me of my own love of history. Discovering how amazing our past has been and the wonders that history adds to our present inspires me.

Howard Carter and his team almost gave up. Carter pressed them to continue one more season after nearly seven years of finding nothing. The perseverance that Carter displayed is a lesson to us all to not give up, as the most amazing moments may lie just around the corner.
