The spectacular excavations at the Valley of the Golden Mummies in 1999 and 2000 captured headlines and rekindled America's fascination with ancient Egypt. In that spirit comes a critically acclaimed biography of the young monarch whose mummified remains and fantastic treasure constituted the greatest archaeological find in history.

His tomb was discovered in 1922. But lost in a frenzy of speculation -- anthropological, scientific, and commercial -- was Tutankhamen himself. Three thousand five hundred years earlier, the mightiest nation on earth had crowned a seven-year-old boy as its king, then worshiped him as a god. Nine years later, he was dead.

In Tutankhamen, Christine El Mahdy finally delivers a coherent portrait of King Tut's life and its historical significance.
