About this title


This fascinating investigation, which accompanies a television series, uses the results of modern scientific analytical techniques to uncover new personal details about Egypt's most famous pharaohs. Tyldesley focuses on three mysteries: the identity of the builders of the Great Pyramids, including questions of how and why they did it, reasons why the 18th dynasty died out, and the identity of a mummified female temple singer. The scientific material, including DNA research and facial reconstruction, is presented in an extremely readable manner and brings characters such as Tutankhamun and Akhenaten to life.

Store Description

The books listed on ABE are not always available in our stores. Please do not call our store locations for these items. With 3 stores less than 1 hour outside the DC/Metropolitan area (1 in Gaithersburg, 1 in Frederick and 1 in Hagerstown, MD), we have the largest selection of books in the tri-state area. Wonder Book and Video has been in business since 1980 and online since 1997. We have over 1 Million books for sale on our website and another 1 Million books for sale in our 3 locations. We have a very active online inventory and as such, we can receive multiple orders for the same item. We fill those orders on a first come first serve basis, but will refund promptly any items that are out of stock. Since 1980 it has always been about the books. ALL kinds of books from 95 cent children's paperbacks to five figure rare and collectibles. A merging of the old and new is where we started, and it is where we are today. Our retail stores have always been places where a reader can rush in looking for a title needed for a term paper that is due the next day, or where bibliophiles can get lost "in the stacks" for as long as they wish. In 2002 USAToday recognized us as "1 of 10 Great Old Bookstores", and we have been featured in numerous other newspaper and TV stories including Washington Post and CSpan. Members ABAA, ILAB.
