Have you ever wondered what life was like in Ancient Egypt during the reign of Tutankhamun?

This is the thrilling tale of his reign and Howard Carter's discovery of his resting place - both stories cleverly intertwined for the first time ever.

Discover the many aspects of the discovery of the tomb which had been lost to the sand dunes: the treasures found inside, the historical facts of the child pharaoh's life, how people lived during the reign of Tutankhamun.

You will even learn the secrets of the ancient Egyptians such as the different steps of mummification, how papyrus was made and what hieroglyphs say, in the specially designed fold-out pages!

This is a superb introduction to Ancient Egypt and a must have for history enthusiasts and aspiring archaeologists and Egyptologists. Exactly 3,354 years ago, Tutankhamun was the most important person in Egypt. He was a boy of only 9 years, but he reigned over a great empire. Although he died young, today he is the most famous pharaoh of all.
