  Published to coincide with a five-part series on the Discovery Channel, this beautifully illustrated book offers a fine overview of ancient Egyptian history and of current and recent archaeological discoveries that have affected our view of the ancient past. The authors examine five principal issues, each of them touched with controversy: the origins of Egyptian civilization, the impetus to build the pyramids, the use of gold in Egyptian empire-building, the role of religion in everyday Egyptian life, and the nature of ritual mummification.

  In November 1922 a momentous discovery, unlike any other before or since, changed our understanding of the ancient world. However, until now the marvelous story of Carterís quest for Tutankhamun and its culmination in his unearthing of the intact, treasure-filled tomb has been told without a reliable account of the man behind the discovery and the myths that have surrounded it. Carter's legendary discovery in the Valley of the Kings and his painstaking clearance of the intact royal burial are the topic of this definitive biography.
