Lòrd Carnarvon financèt las recèrcas de Carter per trobar la tomba d'un [[faraon]] desconegut abans, [[Totankhamon]], que Carter n'aviá descobèrt l'existéncia. Aprèp qualques meses de recèrcas sens resultas, Carnarvon comencèt de se lanhar de la manca de resultas de son investiment e, en 1922, balhèt a Carter un darrièr finançament per trobar la tomba.
 
Lo [[4 de novembre]] de [[1922]], a la fin de 15 annadas de recèrca e de finançament, Carter finalament trobèt l'escalièr que menava a la tomba de Totankhamon (que seriá puèi denominada [[KV62]]). Aquesta tomba es per ara la tomba de faraon melhor preservada e mai intacta que siá estada trobada dins la [[Val dels Reis]]. Mandèt un telegraf a Lòrd Carnarvon per tal que venguèsse, ande onlo [[November23 26de novembre]], de [[1922]], withacompanhat de LordLòrd Carnarvon, Carnarvon'sla daughterfilha d'aqueste, ande othersd'autres in attendance, Carter madefaguèt the famous "tiny breach in the top left hand corner" of the doorway, ande was able to peer in by the light of a candle ande see that many of the gold ande ebony treasurestresaurs de were still in place. HeSabiá didpas notencara yeten know at thataquel pointmoment whether it was "a tomb or merely a cache," but he did see a promising sealed doorway between twodoas sentinelestatuas statuessentinèlas.
 
The next several weekssetmanas were spent carefully cataloguing the contents of the antechamber. On [[February 16 de febrièr]], de [[1923]], Carter openeddobriguèt thela dintrada sealed doorway, ande found that it did indeed lead to a burial chamber, and he got his first glimpse of thedel [[sarcophagussarcofag]] ofde TutankhamunTotankhamon.
 
NB: Carter's own papers suggest that he, Lord Carnarvon & Lady Evelyn Herbert entered the tomb shortly after its discovery - without waiting for the arrival of Egyptian officials (as stipulated in their excavation permit). Some bizarre and demonstrably inaccurate theories have been offered about the exact extent of the excavators' rule-breaking; but it seems likely that it was (in reality) merely a case of impatient curiosity. They probably felt entitled to look because they had invested time, effort and money on the project for many years - it is widely accepted that their relationship with the government officials interested in their find was strained to the point where tacit non-cooperation became almost second nature to Carter.
 
While unwrapping the linens of the mummy, presumably looking for treasure, thelo skullcrani of thedel ancient kingrei fell away from thedel bodycòs. The impact from its fall out of the tomb made a dent indins thelo skullcrani. Los [[Egyptiansegipcians]] believed aun kingrei could only be immortal ifse theson bodycòs rested undisturbed, so some believe the namenom of thedel kingrei must still be spoken today as a remembrance.
 
==Later work & Deathmòrt==
After cataloguing the extensive finds, Carter retiredse fromretirèt archaeologyde andl'arqueologia e became aun collector. He visited thelos [[UnitedEstats StatesUnits]] inen [[1924]], and gave a series of illustrated lectures indins [[City of New York|New York City]] which were attended by very large ande enthusiastic audiences. He died inen [[EnglandAnglatèrra]] inen [[1939]] at the age of 64. TheLa archaeologist'smòrt deathde l'arqueeològ, so long after the opening of the tomb, is the most common piece of evidence put forward by skeptics to refute the idea of a curse (the "[[Curse of the Pharaohs]]") plaguing the party that violated Tutankhamun's tomb.
 
Howard Carter is buried in [[Putney Vale]] Cemetery in West London. On his gravestone is written: "May your spirit live, May you spend millions of years, You who love Thebes, Sitting with your face to the north wind, Your eyes beholding happiness." (from the Wishing Cup of [[Tutankhamun]])
