Lòrd Carnarvon financèt las recèrcas de Carter per trobar la tomba d'un [[faraon]] desconegut abans, [[Totankhamon]], que Carter n'aviá descobèrt l'existéncia. Aprèp qualques meses de recèrcas sens resultas, Carnarvon comencèt de se lanhar de la manca de resultas de son investiment e, en 1922, balhèt a Carter un darrièr finançament per trobar la tomba.
 
Lo [[4 de novembre]] de [[1922]], a la fin de 15 annadas de recèrca e de finançament, Carter finalament trobèt l'escalièr que menava a la tomba de Totankhamon (que seriá puèi denominada [[KV62]]). Aquesta tomba es per ara la tomba de faraon melhor preservada e mai intacta que siá estada trobada dins la [[Val dels Reis]]. Mandèt un telegraf a Lòrd Carnarvon per tal que venguèsse, e lo [[23 de novembre]] de [[1922]], acompanhat de Lòrd Carnarvon, la filha d'aqueste, e d'autres in attendance, Carter faguèt the famous "tiny breach in the top left hand corner" of the doorway, e was able to peer in bygràcias theal lightlum ofd'una a candlecandela e seede thatveire manyque ofuna thebèla goldpart e ebonydels tresaurs ded'aur weree stilld'ebony inèran placeencara en plaça.

The next several setmanas were spent carefully cataloguing the contents of the antechamber. On [[16 de febrièr]] de [[1923]], Carter dobriguèt la dintrada sealed doorway, e found that it did indeed lead to a burial chamber, and he got his first glimpse del [[sarcofag]] de Totankhamon.
 
NB: Carter's own papers suggest that he, Lord Carnarvon & Lady Evelyn Herbert entered the tomb shortly after its discoverydescobèrta - withoutsens waitingesperar forl'arribada thedels arrivaloficials of Egyptian officialsegipcians (ascoma stipulatedo inestipulava theirlo excavationpermés permitd'excavacion). Some bizarre and demonstrably inaccurate theoriesteorias have been offered about the exact extent of the excavators' rule-breaking; but it seems likely that it was (in reality) merely a case of impatient curiositycuriositat. They probably felt entitled to look because they had invested time, effort ande moneyargent on thelo projectprojècte for many years - it is widely accepted that their relationship withamb the government officials interested in their find was strained to the point where tacit non-cooperation became almost second nature to Carter.
 
While unwrapping the linens of the mummy, presumably looking for treasure, lo crani del ancient rei fell away from del còs. The impact from its fall out of the tomb made a dent dins lo crani. Los [[egipcians]] believed un rei could only be immortal se son còs rested undisturbed, so some believe the nom del rei must still be spoken todayuèi ascoma a remembrance.
 
==Later work & mòrt==
Aprèp qu'aguèsse catalogat las extensive finds, Carter se retirèt de l'arqueologia e venguèt un colleccionaire. Visitèt los [[Estats Units]] en [[1924]], e faguèt una seria de conferéncias illustradas dins [[City of New York|New York City]] which were attended by very large e entosiastia audiences. Se moriguèt en [[Anglatèrra]] en [[1939]] a l'edat de 64 ans. La mòrt de l'arqueològ, so long after the opening de la tomba, is the most common piece of evidence put forward by skeptics to refute the idea of a curse (the "[[Curse of the Pharaohs]]") plaguing the party that violated Tutankhamun's tomb.
