The Earl of Carnarvon was a British Egyptologist who was the patron and associate of the archaeologist Howard Carter in the discovery, of King Tutankhamen’s tomb, in 1922, which he photographed. A keen amateur photographer, Carnarvon also worked with the platinum process. The Royal Photographic Society owns some 22 of these pieces of his work.
