When and where was Carter born?

Howard Carter was born on March 9th, 1874. (I thought he was like 80, but he was only 65 when he died!) Various sources say that he was born in London, but the city is still uncertain. (I don't think I would be very happy if I found out that where I was born was uncertain!!) Carter's father, Samuel Carter, was a very well known animal artist. (Which is probably where he got his artistic abilities from.) At about the age of 7 years old, Carter started work for an old family friend-the Amhersts. Carter died on March 2nd, 1939.


  1. did he help find king tut's tomb?

  2. he started work when he was 7? thats pretty young! I didnt know he was an artist. I dont really know what an animal artist is?
