A Highclere connection? Yes.
Lord Carnavon, Howard Carter's employer, lived at Highclere Castle, where the ITV period drama Downton Abbey has been filmed in part the past three years, and is the home of the two hosts of this next video, the Eighth Earl and Countess of Carnarvon, who, to honor the Fifth Earl's efforts, have developed an Egyptian exhibition in their home's basement that the public can visit.
