ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Howard Carter (9 May 1874 – 2 March 1939) was a British archaeologist and Egyptologist who became world-famous after discovering the intact tomb (designated KV62) of the 18th Dynasty Pharaoh, Tutankhamun (colloquially known as "King Tut" and "the boy king"), in November 1922.
Arthur Cruttenden Mace (17 July 1874 – 6 April 1928) was a Tasmanian-born British Egyptologist.
A student and cousin of W. M. Flinders Petrie, Mace began his career excavating for Petrie at Dendera, Hiw and Abydos, then excavated with George A. Reisner at Giza and Naga el-Deir. Examples of his finds are in many museums in the United Kingdom. In 1901 he became Assistant Curator of Egyptian Art at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York.
He was a member of Howard Carter's team during the discovery of Tutankhamun's tomb (KV62) in 1922, and provided an invaluable help to Carter during both the excavations and the drafting of the first volume of The Tomb of Tut.ankh.Amen. In 1924, Mace left Egypt forever for health reason and later died in 6 April 1928.
