Theodore Davis excavated in the Valley of the Kings in the early 1900s. One of his most important finds came in 1908 when, in searching for the Tomb of Tutankhamun near the later tomb of Ramesses VI, he found items including floral collars with inscriptions of Tutankhamun. Although Davis did not find "Tut.'s" tomb, his discoveries provided an essential clue on the actual location of this virtually undisturbed 18th Dynasty tomb, leading to its discovery 14 years later by Howard Carter in 1922.
