Who Was King Tut? (Who Was...?)

Ever since Howard Carter uncovered King Tutankhamun?s tomb in 1922, the young pharaoh has become a symbol of the wealth and mystery of ancient Egypt. Now, a two-and-a-half-year-long museum exhibit of Tut?s treasures is touring major cities in the U.S., drawing record crowds. This Who Was . . . ? is complete with 100 black-andwhite illustrations and explains the life and times of this ancient Egyptian ruler, covering the story of the tomb?s discovery, as well as myths and so-called mummy curses.Ever since Howard Carter uncovered King Tutankhamun?s tomb in 1922, the young pharaoh has become a symbol of the wealth and mystery of ancient Egypt.
