Reviews

[An] insightful, informative, and beautifully illustrated overview of archaeologists' quests to find the tombs of some of the most famous individuals of the ancient world--Imhotep, Nefertiti, Cleopatra, and the Macedonian leader Alexander the Great foremost among them--that so far have eluded discovery. Along with chronicling expeditions, Naunton provides colorful biographies of these major historical figures and the world they inhabited... An authoritative guide leads an illuminating journey into the distant past.
With the lure of ancient celebrities, Naunton beckons readers to Egyptology, and with abundant photographs and chronological guidance, he masterfully succeeds.
Naunton succeeds in his goal to get readers 'excited by the possibility that there might be such extraordinary surprises yet to come.' ... Recommended for anyone interested in ancient Egyptian civilization or the history of Egyptology.
