FIrst class biography,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Howard Carter: And the Discovery of the Tomb of Tutankhamun (Hardcover)
This is a first class biography - in any way you look at it. Perhaps it is the author's journalism background that allows him to tell a thoroughly fascinating story so well. He has captured the time, and he has been very fair in his treatment of Carter, and has not judged him to harshly, considering what Carter had to endure post the discovery.
Winstone has also done an excellent job of including some unique photographs, the one I especially find intriguing one that shows the reflection of Evelyn Herbert (Canarvon's daughter) in the glass case that displayed Tutankhamun's burial mask.
