History Lesson: King Tutankhamen's coffin is found

On February 16th, 1923 archaeologist Howard Carter entered the sealed burial chamber of King Tutankhamen.  Carter and his team entered the interior chambers of the tomb on November 26, 1922 and found that the treasures and artifacts had remained untouched for more than 3,000 years!  But it wasn't until February 16th that he and Lord Carnarvon laid eyes on King Tutankhamen's coffin.
