Zahi Hawass's lively descriptions of his life's work, accompanied by many previously unpublished photographs, take the reader all over Egypt, including the famous monuments at Giza, where he has supervised the restoration f the Sphinx and the Great Pyramids, explored the newly discovered tombs of the workers who built the pyramids, and developed a major plan to preserve the site under the tremendous pressure of tourism. Dr Hawass writes of life in ancient Egypt based on scientific analysis of excavations conducted by himself or under his supervision. He also spins tales of tomb-raiders, explains how he negotiates with locals, and describes in detail the experience of entering a tomb.
