This Day in History: 1923 – English archaeologist Howard Carter enters the sealed burial chamber of the ancient Egyptian ruler King Tutankhamen.

Fact of the Day: Mummification, or the careful preserving of a body after death, was a way for Egyptians to prepare their rulers for the afterlife.  Because they also believed their pharaohs (rulers) were gods, they also buried them in elaborate tombs containing rich treasures to accompany them in the afterlife.

Black History Month: John Wesley Gilbert, an archaeologist born in Georgia in 1864, was the first black person to earn a master’s degree at Brown University.  Gilbert also excavated and mapped numerous Greek city-states, the most famous being Eretria in 1891.
