illustrated by Stefano Tambellini


On 4 November 1922, a young Egyptian boy who was part of Howard Carter’s archaeological team stumbled upon a mysterious rock. To Carter's amazement, it revealed a hidden stairway leading to a long-forgotten tomb filled with incredible treasures. This tomb belonged to the legendary boy pharaoh Tutankhamun, and it held priceless artifacts that had remained untouched for over 3,000 years. David Long's captivating retelling of Carter's relentless pursuit of this remarkable discovery sheds light on the ancient world of Egypt and its secrets.
