Searching for the Lost Tombs of Egypt

Despite 200 years of archaeological excavation in Egypt we have yet to find the tombs of some of the most celebrated figures in the ancient world including Imhotep, Nefertiti, Alexander the Great, and Cleopatra. All were buried in Egypt, probably in lavish monuments. Many have searched for them, making use of extensive trails of evidence. What are the chances that another tomb to rival Tutankhamun’s might be found in the future?

In his book ‘Searching for the Lost Tombs of Egypt‘, Chris Naunton provides a compelling insight into the search for ancient Egypt’s lost tombs, providing a completely up-to-date inside story of all the latest theories and discoveries.
