King Tut's tomb was discovered by Archaeologist Howard Carter 100 years ago on November 4th, 1922, in Luxor, Egypt. The University of Washington, using Gale digital scholar lab allows students the ability to uncover new historical connections to King Tut's tomb. A major archeological discovery made nearly 100 years ago now appears in a whole new light for researchers and the curious public alike. Tutankhamun Centenary: 1922–2022 showcases groundbreaking digital humanities (DH) research. By using tools to make previously inaccessible collections accessible, masters and undergraduate students created Tut Talks. In the collection are Howard Carter's private papers. Also featured in articles from The Times of London are the excavation and discovery of the tomb.
Dr. Sarah Ketchley, project sponsor, and affiliate instructor, at the University of Washington Department of Middle Eastern Languages and Cultures, says;
“There has long been a wealth of information on the discovery of King Tut’s tomb, but it was not aggregated, curated, or highly accessible until relatively recently, when archives such as the Griffith Institute in Oxford, U.K., started putting material online. The Tut Talks DH project is not only important due to its interesting subject matter; it also highlights the critical role DH plays in academia to connect our understanding of the past, present, and future.”
