Recommended for: Anyone interested in archaeology/Egyptology.

I really enjoyed this exciting lead-up (albeit a translation)to the discovery of Tutankhamun's tomb, even though I knew what was going to happen! It was intriguing to take on board a positive perspective of Howard Carter, who is portrayed as an almost spiritual, non-materialistic "Egyptophile", unlike so many uncomplimentary accounts of his adventures in the Valley of the Kings, where he is depicted as a ruthless gold-digging (literally!)treasure-hunter. Now I just have to go to Egypt!
