"If you look at the skull, if you examine the letter from the young queen, if you hold the royal ring in your hand, it's clear that something shocking and violent happened to King Tut." -Dr. Bob Brier Three thousand years ago, a nineteen-year-old pharaoh died mysteriously. Hastily, a commoner's tomb was readied for his burial, his body mummified, fabulous jewels and furniture gathered, the tomb sealed. Then: silence. In the years that followed, almost every trace of the young king and his wife was literally erased. In 1922, the small tomb was uncovered; inside lay the most glorious royal Egyptian treasures ever unearthed, and Tut's place in history was restored. So dazzling was the treasure-the golden coffin, the mask, the jewels, the vases-that it was easy to forget that almost nothing was revealed about the man buried there. What really happened to King Tut? His brutal murder and his queen's subsequent frantic overtures to neighboring kings are just two of Dr. Bob Brier's startling allegations as he pieces together the evidence and comes back with a convincing verdict. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.
