Description
The ancient Egyptians built magnificent tombs for their pharaohs in the dry sand of the Valley of the Kings. By the early 20th century, 61 had been discovered, but Howard Carter was determined to find the tomb of Tutankhamun, a boy king who came to the throne aged 9, in 1333 B.C. In 1922, Carter uncovered some steps in the sand that led down to a sealed door. An unimaginable store of Egyptian treasures was about to be revealed. This book tells the story of Carter's discoverey. Superb illustrations invite the reader to share his excitement at the wondrous treasures he found, and through them to learn about everyday life in Tutankhamun's life.
