100 years ago, ‘Tutankhamun’ became the most exciting ever discovery in archaeology, attracting world-wide attention then and today. Behind the front-page news is the story of how an English Earl developed a love of Egypt, was persuaded to give ‘one more year’ to what was thought to be a no-hope quest, and died in Cairo before he could return to his beloved home at Highclere Castle.
Diana Mitchell, Head Guide at the Castle for nearly twenty years, tells this fascinating tale and its place in the wider story of a place, a family and a more recent claim to fame – as ‘The Real Downton Abbey’. Haslemere Museum, £5
This event is at Haslemere Museum.
