Publisher Comments:

Using the latest archaeological evidence to separate fact from fiction, Egyptologist Charlotte Booth unravels the riddle of the Exodus, identifies the real cause of Tutankhamuns death, and reveals a fascinating world of cursed tombs, the missing land of Punt, and even a cross-dressing king. Booth selects ten of the most famous mysteries of Ancient Egypt and explores the recent theories and outlandish guesses put forward by leading archaeologists, scientists, and historians, whilst exposing the truth behind puzzles that have baffled scholars for generations. Guaranteed to delight and inform, this book spans thousands of years from the construction of the pyramids to Ancient Egypts decline, and illuminates the true brilliance of one of the greatest civilizations in the history of humankind. Charlotte Booth teaches Egyptology at Birkbeck College in London UK.
