This is a richly visual, handheld guide to King Tut, Egyptology, the great gods, the mysteries of the pyramids, and the truth behind the curse of the mummy. Drawing on the renewed interest in Egyptian archaeology fostered by the recent discovery and ongoing excavation of over 150 tombs in the Valley of the Kings, this Fandex dazzles with hieroglyphs and grave robbers, the Sphinx, Rameses and Howard Carter, Karnak, Thoth, and Thebes. Discover the collection of spells, incantations, passwords and advice of The Book of the Dead. Learn the secrets of embalming, including the only vital organ to be left in the preserved body. Illustrating the entries is a rich selection of images drawn from tomb paintings, statues, archaeological finds and museum exhibits.
