Howard Carter’s House


Hi, I’m the author of Meredith Pink’s Adventures in Egypt, a mystery/adventure series set in the present day, but all with an ancient Egyptian mystery at their heart.  There are nine books in the series so far.  The first starts with English tourist Merry being inadvertently locked inside the Howard Carter Museum (once his house) near the Valley of the Kings.  Trying to escape, she accidentally smashes a picture frame. Inside, she finds a coded message which sets her off on a madcap treasure hunt around some of Egypt’s most iconic sites.

Here are a few photographs of where it all started: inside Howard Carter’s house, now fabulously presented as a museum.  It evokes the rather austere living arrangements of a 1920s excavator and archaeologist.

This is the desk Merry falls onto while trying to climb up and release the bolts on the window shutters. (Me wearing Howard Carter’s hat – although I doubt its the real one!)


This is the bed Merry scoots under to rescue her bangle which has slipped off her wrist.  The guard doesn’t see her when he does his last check before locking up, which is how she comes to get locked in for the night.
