Howard Carter celebrated in todayโ€™s Google Doodle

Howard Carter, born May 9, 1874, in London, the famed archaeologist who discovered the tomb of Tutankhamun, got a Google Doodle Wednesday on what would be his 138th birthday.

Famously, several of Carterโ€™s team โ€” including his sponsor Lord Carnarvon โ€” died mysteriously in the years following his discovery of the tomb of Tutankhamun, although a 2002 study found their death rate was statistically normal.
