  1. Dear Webmaster,
    once again the photo of a house ON TOP OF THE HILL NOT Castle Carter. It is “Stoppelaer House”, as it has been mentioned already on several blogs…
    please change or take out your picture!!!
    Best regards.

    • Dear Raymond Betz
      If you had read the post you will have realised that I was talking about Stoppelear House as well as Castle Carter and there are photographs of both houses. Castle Carter is now a museum and open to the public and yes, it is at the bottom of the hill.

  2. You are quite right: you mention indeed Stoppelaere House. I was mislead by the fact that next to the image, one was speaking of Carter’s House. Utility of having a legend.
    Sorry for NOT having been attentive enough!

    • Hi Raymond
      The pictures are captioned but unfortunatley IE8 doesn’t show alt-tags by default. Looks like I’m going to have to put separate captions on my pictures in future.

  3. Great post!

    It is funny how we see the making of history!
    Carter was trying to find out about the history of Egypt, and he and his house ended up being a piece of history themselves!… Maybe our blogs will be found few thousand years from now as historical records of a “lost era”! Ok, hopefully we won’t be found lol!

    Here is the movie that shows Howard Carter looking for Tutankhamun


    I enjoyed your post alot, you surely got a new subscriber here! thanks again…


  4. It is with great regret that I have been informed early this afternoon of the death of Mme. Christiane Desroches Noblecourt by Mme. Colette Rozoy, Secretary of the “Cercle Scientifique Etienne Drioton” of Nancy.

    We shall miss her as much as we miss the late Canon Etienne Drioton, both of whom have served the Louvre Museum to the best of their knowledge.

    Indeed, it is a great loss for the World of Arts and Sciences, and for the Mansoor family that has known her for more than 60 years.

    By the Grace of God, may she rest in peace.

    With great sorrow,

    Edgard Mansoor
