Highclere

Highclere Castle is the home of the Earls of Carnarvon, and it was Carnarvon who sponsored Howard Carter's search for, and eventual discovery of, King Tutankhamen's tomb.

This is a wonderful estate to visit, and there is a great exhibit of the Egyptology here, including a reconstruction of the tomb as it looked when it was found.

Carnarvon succumbed, of course, to the "Curse of Tutankhamen" and never made it back to this home after the opening of the tomb.
