In Egypt, highly respected author and archaeologist Joyce Tyldesley follows in the footsteps of the intrepid Egyptologists who have helped to unlock the extraordinary secrets of ancient Egypt. We discover how spectacular treasures that had lain undisturbed for 2000 years were brought to life by real-life Indiana Joneses, such as the flamboyant circus strongman, the Great Belzoni.
From the nail-biting race to crack the hieroglyphic code to Howard Carter's dramatic discovery of the golden treasures in Tutankhamen's tomb - surely the most heart-stopping moment in the history of archaeology - we experience the excitement, emotion and intrigue of this gripping adventure story.
