Product Description:

Publisher Description:

This Jackdaw traces the story of the excavation, illustrating Howard Carter's work as an archaeologist and the enormous public interest in the discovery of the tomb. Through pictures both full-color and black and white drawings, and a hands-on model, it shows the treasures buried with the young pharaoh, and the fabulous golden shrine and coffins in which the mummy of Tutankhamun lay in its blackened bandages. A wealth of contemporary illustrations brings to life the ancient world in which the mysterious young pharaoh lived and died.

Historian: Magnus Magnusson.

Lots of good information!
My sister and I used this to prepare reports for our class. My sister is really interested in Eygpt and she now likes to read other books about Eygpt. I want to visit Eygpt sometime.
