Highclere Castle

The museum at the Highclere Estate has been removed from the Hatshepsut Database. I have been unable to locate any items which can be tied into the lifetime of Hatshepsut.

I will contact the Highclere Estate in due course, but for now i will concentrate on other museums.

Regards,
Stuart

Hi Stuart

I wanted you to know that in a book called "Treasures of the Vatican Collections" by Alan Levy, 1983, pg.89

ISBN 0-452-25393-4

Is a stele of Hatshepsut and Thutmosis III, Hatshepsut stands in front of Amun with Thut. III behind her. Not sure if you know about this stele, unfortunately the book provides no museum #.

Cheers

Also, the stela has been entered into the Hatshepsut Database. This is the only Hatshepsut item from the Vatican Museums collections currently known to me.

Please continue with more suggestions- there will be many items not on the database as they are not known to me. Thanks, Stuart
