Description

Tombs, mummies, and funerary items make up a significant portion of the archeological remains that survive ancient Egypt and have come to define the popular perception of Egyptology. Despite the many sensational discoveries in the last century, such as the tomb of Tutankhamun, the tombs of some of the most famous individuals in the ancient world--Imhotep, Nefertiti, Alexander the Great, and Cleopatra--have not yet been found.

Archeologist Chris Naunton examines the famous pharaohs, their achievements, the bling they might have been buried with, the circumstances in which they were buried, and why those circumstances may have prevented archeologists from finding these tombs.

In Searching for the Lost Tombs of Egypt, Naughton sheds light on the lives of these ancient Egyptians and makes an exciting case for the potential discovery of these lost tombs.
