Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0283072938, Hardcover)The discovery and excavation of Tutankhamun's tomb is one of the most famous archaeological finds in history. However, compelling evidence suggests that the story we know is a sham. This book claims that Howard Carter and Lord Caernarvon actually discovered the tomb several years before they told the world they did, looting it (even destroying some artifacts to make it seem as though tomb robbers from centuries before had been there) and then re-sealing it, leading the world's media back to the site to claim their place in history. This is the story of the skullduggery that went on in the Valley of the Kings between the wars, and how the mummy's curse, far from being something mystical, could well have been a systematic way of getting rid of those who were about to blow the cover on the secret of the find, and the secrets of the tomb.
