On 4 November 1922, an Egyptian boy working on Howard Carterís archaeological dig in the Valley of the Kings stumbled across a strange rock. It turned out to be a stone step that would lead Carter to a long-lost tomb Ė and to treasures beyond his wildest dreams.
The tomb belonged to boy pharaoh Tutankhamun and was packed full of priceless artefacts. It had been largely untouched for over 3,000 years and remains one of the most important archaeological discoveries of all time.
In this fact-filled account of Carterís long and determined quest, David Long shows how his amazing discoveries told us so much about life in Ancient Egypt.
