In 1918, the war over, Carter is released from the army and resumes his search for Tutankhamun's tomb, re-encountering Maggie who provides a house for him. Carnarvon also returns with his family and again argues with Carter regarding the tomb's location as a new find is made. Impressed by his local knowledge Carnarvon's daughter Evelyn encourages him to make his own decisions but the funds run out and Maggie returns to America. Carnarvon also considers giving up but his hand is forced when Carter proposes selling everything he has to finance one last dig. Carnarvon relents and his decision would appear to be justified as the steps to a tomb are unearthed.
