Summary
"Egypt boasts some of the most spectacular ancient ruins in the world, scattered across the entire country. Over the past two centuries, archaeologists have unearthed the burials of some of Egypt's celebrated pharaohs, from the chambers deep within the famed pyramids at Giza to the tombs hidden away in the rocky hills of the Valley of the Kings. And yet, many of the most intriguing and notorious individuals remain unaccounted for. Where are Alexander the Great and Cleopatra, both said by the historians of the Greek and Roman empires to have been buried in Egypt? Chris Naunton describes the quest for these and other great 'missing' tombs and those that we know must exist, but have yet to be found and presents the key moments of discovery that have yielded astonishing finds and created the archetypal image of the archaeologist poised at the threshold of a tomb left untouched for millennia"--
