LC: To write a discussion text

Today, you need to continue to write your discussion about the excavation of King Tutankhamun’s tomb by Howard Carter in 1922. Today’s writing should present the 'arguments for’ this. You can use the arguments below if you want to or use different ones of your own, either way is fine. 

Whichever you choose to write about, there should be three arguments ‘for’ in total. You must explain each of the points with enough detail. 

  • Carter’s findings were historically significant and tell us a lot about the ancient Egyptians.
  • If he hadn’t excavated the tomb, grave robbers eventually would’ve found it and taken the treasure inside. 
  • To restore and preserve all the items inside.
