About the Author
Garry J. Shaw is an author and journalist covering archaeology, history, and world heritage. He is the author of six books, including The Pharaoh: Life at Court and on Campaign, The Egyptian Myths: A Guide to the Ancient Gods and Legends, and Egyptian Mythology.
"Garry Shaw has done a remarkable job synthesizing everything we know and do not know about Tutankhamun. . . . Stunning color photos . . . add to the tale."--Kelly Macguire, World History Encyclopedia

"Shaw's compelling portrait of the young pharaoh in life and in death is based on the latest research and impeccable sources. Here we move far beyond Carter and Carnarvon into the life of the king himself. This brilliant achievement will appeal to anyone interested in archaeology and ancient Egypt. A lovely book!"--Brian Fagan, author of Lord and Pharaoh

"A fascinating, up-to-date and superbly well-informed account of Egypt's most famous Pharaoh. Shaw has done a wonderful job."--Robert Twigger, author of Red Nile

"This exceptional account not only brings the reign of Tutankhamun back to life, it also shows the ruler in a new light, not only as king of ancient Egypt, but as a human being."--Christina Geisen, University of Cambridge

"Tutankhamun and his tomb have captured the hearts of all of us. His story contains the thrill of magic and curses. This book brings with it more magic with a new take on the time of the golden boy."--Zahi Hawass, author of Tutankhamun and the Golden Age of the Pharaohs

"Shaw writes in an engaging manner, with the erudition of a scholar and the flair of a journalist."--Ronald J. Leprohon, University of Toronto
