When the archaeologist Howard Carter opened the tomb of the pharaoh Tutankhamun for the first time on the 26 November 1922, he was overwhelmed by the treasures that met his eyes. Four chambers lay before him, some of them filled to the roof with funerary objects of immeasurable value, destined to accompany the dead king on his journey into the hereafter.
The fifth Earl of Carnarvon and Howard Carter discovered King Tut's tomb. The expedition was funded largely by the fifth Earl of Carnarvon, owner of Highclere Castle.
