Lonely Planet review for Carter's House
Surrounded by a garden on what is otherwise a barren hill, where the road from Deir al-Bahri to the Valley of the Kings meets the road from Seti I’s temple, stands the domed house where Howard Carter lived during his search for Tutankhamun’s tomb. The house has been decorated with pictures and tools of the excavation. A cafe is expected to open shortly, making this a peaceful place to stop for a refreshment.
