EARL AND THE PHARAOH, THE: FROM THE REAL DOWNTON ABBEY TO THE DISCOVERY OF TUTAN

Between November 1922 and spring 1923 a door to the ancient Egyptian world was opened. The discovery of the tomb of Tutankhamun would be the most astonishing archaeological find of the century revealing not only the boy pharaoh s preserved remains but thousands of finely crafted objects from the iconic gold mask and coffins to a dagger made from meteorite chalices beautiful furniture and even 3000-year-old food and wine. The world s understanding of Ancient Egyptian civilisation was immeasurably enhanced and the quantity and richness of the objects in the tomb is still being studied today. Two men were ultimately responsible for the discovery: Lord Carnarvon and Howard Carter. It was Lord Carnarvon who held the concession to excavate and whose passion and ability to finance the project allowed the eventual discovery to take place.
