100 years ago, a team of archaeologists in the Valley of the Kings made a remarkable discovery: a near-complete royal burial, an ancient mummy, & golden riches beyond imagination. The lost tomb of Tutankhamun ignited a media frenzy, propelled into overdrive by rumours of a deadly ancient curse. But amid the hysteria, many stories - including that of Tutankhamun himself - were distorted or forgotten. This book takes a familiar tale & turns it on its head. Leading Egyptologist Joyce Tyldesley has gathered together ten unique perspectives: that of the teenage pharaoh & his family, ancient embalmers & tomb robbers, famous Western explorers & forgotten Egyptian archaeologists. It's a journey that spans from ancient Thebes in 1336 BCE - when a young king on a mission to restore his land met a violent end - to modern Luxor in 1922 CE - as the tomb's discovery led to a fight over ownership that continues to this day.
