Lord Carnarvon can tunnel through rock with a pick-axe. He is humanoid. He is an omnivore.
Lord Carnarvon was a personality who could have been produced
nowhere but in England, a mixture of sportsman and collector,
gentleman and world traveler, a realist in action and a
romantic in feeling. ... In 1903 he went for the first time
to Egypt in search of a mild climate and while there visited
the excavation sites of several archaeological expeditions.
... In 1906 he began his own excavations.
