This review is from: The Lost Tomb: The Most Extraordinary Archaeological Discovery of Our Time - The Burial Site of the Sons of Rameses II (Paperback)
This book is written by a man who clearly knows his Egyptology. He writes with a true passion for his work and this passion easily spills out of the covers and into the reader. The book starts with an almost autobiographical feel to the life and work of Dr.Weeks but moves swiftly to the beginning of his work in Eygpt. It is here that he begins his seemingly endless task of mapping the entire area of the Theban Necropolis - the Valley of the Kings. Whilst carrying out this task it transpires that several of the tombs, discovered and opened either in ancient times or in the last couple of hundred years, are now 'missing'. This book tells the story of the 're-discovery' of one of them; what turns out to be the largest and most unusual of all tombs in Eygpt; KV5.
I found the book a compelling read and thoroughly recommend it to anyone interested in history as a whole.
