Starting work earlier than usual Howard Carter opened up the stairway to the tomb of Tutankhamen on 4 November Carnarvon hurried to Luxor and the tomb was entered on 26 November. The discovery astounded the world: Carter recruited a team of expert assistants to help him in the clearance of the tomb, and the conservation and recording of its remarkable contents. On 16 February the blocking to the burial chamber was removed, to reveal the unplundered body and funerary equipment of the dead king.

In spite of considerable and repeated bureaucratic interference, not easily managed by the short-tempered excavator, work on the clearance of the tomb proceeded slowly, but was not completed until Carter handled the technical processes of clearance, conservation, and recording with exemplary skill and care.

Twelve Years a Slave. The harrowing true story that inspired the critically acclaimed film The son of a freed slave, Solomon Northup lived the first thirty years of his life as a free man in upstate New York.

In the spring of , he was offered a job: It was a trap. In Washington, DC, Northup was drugged, kidnapped, and sold into slavery. He spent the next twelve years on plantations in Louisiana, enduring backbreaking labor, unimaginable violence, and inhumane treatment at the hands of cruel masters, until a kind stranger helped to win his release. With its eloquent depiction of life before and after bondage, Twelve Years a Slave was a unique and effective entry into the national debate over slavery.
