The tomb of King Tutankhamen is one of the most famous discoveries in the history of archeology and world history. The tomb is located in the Valley of the Kings, near Thebes, Egypt (modern-day Luxor).
Tutankhamens Tomb was important because it let archaeologists record what an Egyptian king’s tomb looked like and learn more about ancient Egypt.
The tomb is given the designation KV62. The KV stands for Valley of the Kings and the 62 is because it was the 62nd tomb found there.
Howard Carter was a British archaeologist.
