Egypt at Highclere. The story of the Egyptian Exhibition at Highclere Castle. The Exhibition at the Castle tells the story of firstly, the 5th Earl's excavations on the West Bank from 1905 and then the extraordinary story of the discovery of the Tomb of Tutankhamun in 1922. The Shrine Room displays astonishingly exact and beautiful replicas of the Shrine, the Middle Coffin, the Mummy and the iconic Death Mask of the Boy Pharaoh. Many years of exploration and excavation, the two intrepid Englishmen finally made the most important archaeological discovery of the century.
