    DescriptionIn this beautifully illustrated volume, archaeologist Hawass reveals his first-hand experiences at a site in the middle of the desert which yielded a group of intact Egyptian tombs containing at least 60 gilded mummies, and perhaps hundreds more, dating from the first and second centuries A.D. After providing historical context for the find as well as information about mummification in ancient Egypt, he speculates about how much we may learn from this spectacular discovery. Since the excavation site will remain closed to the public, this volume provides the only way to see what lies within these mysterious graves. He also discusses other sites being rediscovered and excavated, such as the famous Temple of Alexander the Great. Contains 300 illustrations, including 260 color plates. Oversize: 10x12
