Today in 1922 - Howard Carter's Diary
The 28th had only a short entry: "Most of this day was spent in preparing for an official opening of the tomb to take place on the morrow - the 29th. Engelbach, the Chief Inspector, returned from Kena by the midday train, came over to the Valley on his motor-cycle in the afternoon and inspected the discovery". After today, Carter's diary for the year consists mainly of a list of dignitaries who came to visit the tomb - those interested should see the above web page on the Griffiths Institute website.
