Google Doodles Archaeologist Howard Carter's 138th Birthday

Today's Google doodle pays homage to an English archaeologist and Egyptologist Howard Carter, who is noted as a discoverer of the tomb of Tutankhamun in 1922.


Howard's important contribution to his field of archaeology was the discovery of the tomb of Tutankhamun, who was an Egyptian pharaoh of the 18th dynasty.

With a view to mark the 138th birth anniversary of Howard Carter, Google today replaced its usual Google logo with a doodle that includes a wide array of Egyptian treasures that cover the term "Google" and make it barely visible.
