When hearing about the discovery of the tomb of Tutankhamun, only one name ever comes to mind: Howard Carter. However, it is is an oversimplification to only think of Carter as the whole reason for the boy king’s tomb discovery. While this article in no means discredits the work that Carter did to find the tomb, as well as his meticulous recording and contributions to its study, it is only fair to bring up  Hussein Hassan Abd el Rassuhl. Hussein was only 12 years old when he was working as a house boy in Howard Carter’s house, supposedly making tea. On November 4th 1922, Hussein found the top of the staircase, to Tut’s tomb, 13 feet below the entrance to the tomb of Rameses VI. Supposedly, he then ran up to fetch Carter and the rest was history. Carter gave one of Tutankhamun’s elaborate necklaces to Hussein either as a souvenir or to take a photo because the Englishman probably reckoned Hussein looked similar to the boy king at the same age.
