The Highclere Problem

Looking at the books in my possession and looking online - there maybe an issue with (Hatshepsut finds at) Highclere Castle Estate. There are a number of finds still housed at Highclere and others which have moved on. I have yet to find any items which are linked to Hatshepsut.

Deir el Bahri is featured, but Deir el Bahri is a very large area, covering three mortuary temples, later tombs and more. Djeser Djeseru (Hatshepsut's Mortuary Temple) as far as i can tell is only covered in a set of watercolour faxcimilies/ pictures drawn by Howard Carter. I will make further enquiries, but my suspicions are that these are copies of the originals.
