About this book
The true history and the mythology of Tutankhamen, which will appeal to a wide audience, including readers of Egyptology, Victorian literature, the horror genre and social history.
Ninety years ago, Howard Carter discovered Tutankhamen's mummy lying, surrounded by grave goods, in a virtually intact tomb in the Valley of the Kings. Egyptology would never be the same again. This book approaches the story of the lost king, and his development into a cultural icon, with fresh eyes.
