One of the most fascinating exhibitions currently on display at Highclere Castle is the Egyptian Exhibition. This exhibition showcases the collection of the 5th Earl of Carnarvon, who discovered the tomb of Tutankhamun in 1922 alongside Howard Carter. Visitors can see a wide range of Egyptian artifacts, including sarcophagi, jewelry, and sculptures, all in the context of the story of the discovery of the tomb.

The exhibition also highlights the role that Highclere Castle played in the discovery of the tomb, as the 5th Earl of Carnarvon used the castle as his base while he and Howard Carter searched for the tomb. The exhibition includes photographs and letters that help tell the story of the discovery and its impact on the world of Egyptology.

Overall, a visit to Highclere Castle and the Egyptian Exhibition is a fascinating journey through history, from the medieval castle to the discoveries of ancient Egypt. Whether you're a fan of Downton Abbey or a lover of history and culture, this exhibition is not to be missed.
