Supported by Lord Carnarvon, Howard Carter discovered the tomb of Tutankhamun 4th November 1922. He was the only Pharaoh left to have not had his tomb discovered. Howard spent years looking for it. Lord Carnarvon who was interested in ancient Egypt paid for the expeditions. Unusually the tomb was the most intact and complete tomb ever to be found. He was buried with his two stillborn daughters.
Highclere Castle is the stately home of the Carnarvon's and is used as the main location for TV drama Downton Abbey.
