Swaffham Museum

The Carter Connection

Always popular with our visitors, young and old alike, this gallery explores the link Howard Carter had with Swaffham and tells the story of the finding of the tomb of Tutankhamun in 1922.  

This display provides lots of information about Carter and the Ancient Egyptians plus engaging activities for children.  Hear Howard Carter reading from his diary and see Egyptian artefacts from the time of Tutankhamun on loan to us from the British Museum.
