Summary
"Thirty-three hundred years ago at a time of crisis in the empire of the Pharaohs, a boy of ten was crowned king of Egypt. Tutankhamun was burdened with the responsibility of being the law-maker and law-enforcer of a splendid civilization. The tragedy of Tut is that of the young leader cut off before his time, for he died in the tenth year of his reign. His successors strove to erase every record of his existence. But his tomb, untouched through the centuries, yielded the most important and magnificent discovery in the history of archaeology. A nineteen-year-old king, whose one desire had been to dominate the world, was to meet his destiny as a showbiz superstar--a cultural phenomenon of the 20th century."
