Howard Carter 138th Birthday Honored by Google Doodle: Financed by Lord Carnarvon He Found King Tut's Tomb (Tutankhamun), a Find Totally Misinterpreted by the Archaeologists

Nearly 6000 (!) artifacts in this tomb, gold and riches beyond comprehension, and in all the remaining tombs of Ancient Egypt of its many great Pharaohs, its illustrious kings and queens, not anything nearly comparable?! The archaeologists have a gullible answer -- everything else has been stolen by grave robbers -- and apparently melted into butter. Nonsense.

The right answer is that many of the things found in this tomb did not belong there but were hurriedly put into it before being sealed away and buried under tons of rubble at the entrance to keep the tomb's valuable contents from being discovered "40 steps deep" (so the Mishnayot) at the time Pharaonic civilization collapsed to invaders : The Ark of the Covenant and the priestly treasures of the Cohen Gadol are what was actually found.

The Google Doodle for today
is in honor of the 138th birthday of Howard Carter,
the discoverer of King Tut's Tomb,

As written by Sara Gates at the Huntington Post in

Howard Carter Honored On His 138th Birthday With Google Logo
"The Google doodle depicts Carter gazing upon the golden riches and artifacts within the tomb. Behind the treasures is the faint outline of Google's usual logo."
Who was King Tut?
Who was Tutankhamun? The DNA Evidence is Clear: Tut was the Son of Akhenaten (Echnaton) but the Cause of his Death remains Speculative

But what did Howard Carter really find?
Ark of the Covenant
