Didn't they have some of the real artefacts in the real museum a few years ago?

Just as a matter of interest, did you know the Earl of Carnarvon, who accompanied Howard Carter in his excavations in Egypt, lived in Highclere Castle, Newbury, which is also the setting for ITV's splendid period drama 'Downton Abbey'. Also where Katy Price (Jordan) married Peter Andre!!

I've got tickets for a trip on my Birthday - can't wait.  My daughter painted me a replica of the Golden Mask as a Christmas present a couple of years ago.

One of the ladies in our Family History Group told me her mother was a servant at Highclere Castle - but I didn't know about the Carnarvon link - thanks Denise.

Hi
    I went to the Ciaro museum in 1951 when I was on leave in the air force. Tutankhamun was in there then along with his golden mask very impressive.   herby

Hi Greeny
                  No i didn't get to the Bazaars I was only in Ciaro for three days and I was sightseeing all the time and theres so much to see. I got sick of looking at mummies. There were Bazaars in Ismailia near where I was stationed and it's a bit of an education haggleing with the traders you can barter for ten minutes and think you have a bargin but you would still pay more than twice as much of what he paid for it.    herby

I visited the Cairo museum in 1973, King Tut's exhibition was amazing. The one thing that put me off was seeing animals slaughtered in the streets. Whenever we crossed a bridge we had to put our cameras away as we were not allowed to take photos from the bridges, though who was watching I don't know.
