For more than 500 years, the Valley of the Kings held a thriving community--and then it disappeared from the historical records for hundreds of years. Here is the story of the tombs and the ancient royalty buried there, as well as the compelling archeological hunt for the past. "...vividly written...authoritative, informative, and entertaining throughout."--TLS. "...bound to become a classic of Egyptology. One of the best serious books on archeology to appear in many years."--LA Herald Examiner.
