" Spectacular Relics of Egyptomania you can still see in Britain " (Telegraph Travel, 05.11.2019)

Quote:
Britain was fascinated by ancient Egypt long before Howard Carter found Tutankhamun’s tomb, with Napoleon’s Middle Eastern campaign (1798–1801) igniting interest across Europe. Nevertheless, the discovery in 1922 of King Tut’s final resting place sparked a new wave of Egyptomania. ...

... The architecture inspired by Egypt can still be seen on the streets where we live, in the gardens of stately homes, and even on the bleak Yorkshire moors.

To mark the opening of a new Tutankhamun exhibition at London’s Saatchi Gallery, here are some of the finest examples. Best of all, they can be admired without forking out the £37.50 the Saatchi Gallery is demanding. ...

For more on the story, Chris Elliot who is credited in that piece, wrote an article that appeared in the Summer 2013 Kmt Journal, which is worth checking out if you are looking for more on the subject.
