William Cross, author of Lordy! Tutankhamun's Patron As A Young Man and the biographer of Almina, 5th Countess of Carnarvon as well as sketches of the 4th and 6th Countesses of Carnarvon enlarges his appraisal of the often topsy- turvey relationship between Almina's first husband, George Herbert and his side-kick Howard Carter, co-discoverers in 1922 of the Tomb of Tutankhamun. What are the last remaining untold truths about their comradeship, the master-servant relationship between the patron and the archeologist, both lonely, cheerless figures with the tempers of Nile crocodiles? What elements of their personal stories have been suppressed? Why are there still so many anomalies ( read lies ) in the historical account of the time-line of the great discovery of King Tutankhamun that cannot be acknowledged ?
