Anne Diamond interviews Lady Carnarvon about the fascinating discovery of Tutankhamun’s tomb

Hosted by Anne Diamond OBE and her guest Lady Fiona Carnarvon

On November 4, 1922, the long search for King Tutankhamun’s tomb was over when British archaeologists discovered the tomb’s entrance in the city of Thebes. None of this would have been possible without the sponsorship of George Herbert, the 5th Earl of Carnarvon. In this exclusive interview with British broadcaster Anne Diamond, Lady Carnarvon recounts the fascinating discovery of the tomb and shares how this inspired her new book, The Earl and the Pharaoh: From the Real Downton Abbey to the Discovery of Tutankhamun.’
