5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Aldo Dorea Mattos on January 18, 2007
Format: Hardcover
Joyce Tyldesley delivers an interesting, easy-reading report on the exploration of Ancient Egypt. Starting by Tutmoses, the "first egyptologist", the book is divided in parts: Explorers, Collectors and Archaeologists. The chapter about Howard Carter's discovery of Tutankhamon's tomb is breathtaking!
