Synopsis: Discusses the discovery of notable tombs around the world, including the pyramid chamber of the Egyptian boy king Tutankhamen, the royal tombs of China, and the burial ships of Vikings.

From School Library Journal: Grade 3-6?This attractive title is sure to appeal to the adventurous spirit of historically minded readers. Featuring both evocative illustrations and finely reproduced full-color photographs, the book presents the discovery and contents of several ancient "tombs," ranging from the glacier that "buried" Otzi the ice-man about 5000 years ago in the Alps to ship graves in England and Norway not much more than 1000 years ago. Other chapters investigate the tombs of Tutankhamen and the Mayan ruler Pacal, as well as the royal tombs of China, Petra, and Mycenae. Where possible, Ganeri touches upon the beliefs and customs that precipitated the forms of the burials. Each brief chapter also features related sidebars to supplement the main text. The most exciting chapter for many readers will be the last, in which the author explores three burial "mysteries": those of the legendary King Arthur, Alexander the Great, and the Irish kings of Tara. The brevity of the text will attract younger readers just beginning to be interested in history, as well as older, reluctant students. One important mistake, however, slips through in the text: despite Ganeri's assertion, the destruction of Troy, is not covered within the time frame of The Iliad.?Coop Renner, Coldwell Elementary-Intermediate School, El Paso, TX
