Why did Britain's Lord Carnarvon sneak into King Tut's tomb in the middle of the night? Was King Tut's sarcophagus really made of pure gold? Is there a curse of Tutankhamun? This Discovery Channel production will answer all your questions. It re-creates the quest for Tutankhamun's lost tomb, the mysteries that have enshrouded it, and its dramatic reopening 3,000 years after the death of the boy-king preserved inside. The site was rediscovered in 1922 through the perseverance of archaeologist Howard Carter and his wealthy backer, Lord Carnarvon.

Watch as Carter pores over records, searching for a missing king, and discovers Tutankhamun, the last pharaoh. Tutankhamun's amazing archival photographs and dramatic reenactments make you feel as if you're there. Witness the frustration of years without a find and then, finally, the discovery of a lifetime. Look through Carter's eyes as the consecrated sepulchre of the boy- king is opened for the first time, revealing the splendor of treasure, artistry, and provisions meant to ensure his safe passage to the afterlife. For anyone who dreams of the thrill of discovery or the unimaginable wealth of the pharaohs, Tutankhamun lets you feel you are the first to see what's hidden in the tomb of Tutankhamun. --Tara Chace

From the Back Cover:

TUTANKAMEN: The Last Pharaoh. Deep in the Valley of the Kings, ancient Egyptian rulers lay buried beneath tons of rubble in tombs of astonishing complexity. Despite the many raids conducted by grave robbers, the tomb of the boy-king, Tutankhamun, eludes discovery until English adventurer Howard Carter uncovers the clues that reveal the hidden labrynthian catacombs. Despite the fame and wealth they achieve, Carter and his team are dogged by tragedy, believed by many to be the manifestation of The Curse of Tutankhamun. Tutankhamun provides an exceptional view of the discovery of the ages and the haunted men who lived to regret their great achievement.
