About Howard Carter
Howard Carter was a celebrated English archaeologist who gained worldwide stardom in 1922 after he discovered the almost intact tomb of Egyptian pharaoh Tutankhamun, who reigned from 1332-1323 BC. His historic discovery was instrumental in generating mass interest in ancient Egypt.
He was born to Martha and Samuel Carter.
Since he did not instantly suffer from any disease or death after opening the tomb of Tutankhamun, the belief in the "curse of the pharaoh" started to dwindle.
Over the years, he has been portrayed in several films, including the 1992 film Young Indiana Jones and the Curse of the Jackal and its 1995 sequel, where he was portrayed by actor Pip Torrens.
