As part of the celebrations marking the 100th anniversary of the discovery of Tutankhamun’s tomb, the Ministry of Tourism and Antiquities reopened Carter House after its restoration project was completed.
The house was used as the rest house for British archaeologist Howard Carter who found the tomb of the golden boy king, KV62, on November 4th 1922. The USAID-funded project involved a complete refurbishment of the house interior in a 1920s authentic style to create an immersive visitor experience.
The event was attended by the current minister Mr. Ahmed Eissa along with former ministers Dr. Zahi Hawass, Dr. Khaled El-Anany, and Dr. Mahmoud El-Damaty. Dr. Mostafa El-Waziri, the Secretary General of the Supreme Council of Antiquities, gave a speech highlighting the important efforts of joint collaboration that are currently taking place in the field of Egyptology and archaeology.
