       Additional Information  
     
      It was a time of religious and political upheaval--the heretic Pharaoh Akhenaten's religious reforms had been defeated by the power of the Priests of Amun, and the young Boy King, Tutankhamun, had been placed on the throne. There was famine in the land, and ongoing deadly intrigue in the Court as different factions maneuvered to gain control of Egypt. It ended in the mysterious death of the young king, and his hasty, secret burial.

    Nearly thirty-five hundred years later, in the 1920s, a young British archeologist named Howard Carter becomes obsessed with finding Tutankhamun's tomb. But he must struggle with more than the secretive nature of the ancient Egyptians--his work cannot go on without the approval of the modern Egyptian bureaucracy or without continued financial support from the British peer who is looking for treasure more than knowledge.
