O'Farrell, Gerald: The Tutankhamun Deception
Book Number: 002321
Pan Books London 2002 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall New book, 234 pages. The discovery and excavation of Tutankhamun's tomb is one of the most famous archeological finds in history. But compelling evidence suggests that the story we know is a sham: Howard Carter and Lord Carnarvon actually discovered the tomb several years before they told the world they did, resealed it, then led the world's media back to the site to claim their place in history. This is the astonishing story of the skulduggery that went on in the Valley of the Kings between the wars and how the famous Mummy's Curse, far from being a something mystical, could well have been a systematic way of getting rid of those who were about to blow the cover on the secret.
