There are many mysteries associated with ancient Egypt that have perplexed scholars and laymen alike. Egyptologist Charlotte Booth selects ten of the most famous and explores the recent theories and outlandish guesses put forward by leading archaeologists, scientists and historians. Using the latest archaeological evidence to separate fact from fiction, Booth unravels the riddle of the Exodus and the real cause of Tutankhamun's death, and reveals a fascinating world of cursed tombs, mystical lands, and even a cross-dressing king. Guaranteed to delight and inform, this book spans thousands of years from the construction of the pyramids to Ancient Egypt's decline and illuminates the true brilliance of one of the greatest civilizations in the history of humankind.
