knowledge on all things concerning ancient Egyptian culture His TV presentations are clear and precise, and provide important and relevant insight into discoveries, both past and present.With this book, he continues with his carefully considered overview of the discoveries of ancient tombs, those we know, and those which remain illusive, those which are still under dispute and those, if found, would fill in important gaps in the list of pharaoh s as understood.As might be expected, Chris Naunton s book is both erudite and approachable, my only slight regret was that occasionally, when deep in a growing list of unfamiliar names, the use of a simple time bar or similar would have been a help to the reader, in keeping track of times and dates.Brilliant and educational, a must read for any enthusiastic Egyptologist recommended This is a scholarly work by an established Egyptologist on some of the most sensational mysteries in ancient Egyptian history The selected mysteries span the full

probably familiar to many as one of the talking heads on documentaries about ancient Egypt This, which I believe is his first book, is a great and at the same time educational read.Naunton s subject is the search for several of the major missing tombs from ancient Egypt Some will be fairly well known Imhotep, Cleopatra others areobscure, including that of the semi pharaoh Herihor, which Howard Carter was in search of for a time One might expect a tight focus, but Naunton has selected, wisely, to surround each account with enough information for any reader to thoroughly understand the time, the personalities, and the searches This is a good thing, because what most people think they know about ancient Eqypt is pretty much limited to Khufu, Tutankhamun, and Ramesses the Great in other words the Fourth Dynasty and the New Kingdom That s just a sliver of a vast space of geography and time So Naunton covers completely the latest scholarship regarding the Amarna dynasty and their lost tombs where did Nefertiti end up, and was she pharaoh for a time the peregrination of Alexander the Great s corpse, and, best of all, he covers thoroughly the discoveries of Pierre Montet at Tanis, which are ridiculously poorly known because they happened just before and during World War II, but resulted in the discovery of intact royal tombs.I had a great time reading this and I suspect anyone else interested in the period will enjoy it thoroughly The book is well illustrated with maps, greyscale images in the body of the text, and a section of color plates, and the up to date king list at the back a moving target as scholarship advances is very handy What it says on the cover.Interesting look at various excavations in Egypt A must read for anyone interested in either archaeology or Egyptology.
