Summary

Summary

This book unmasks Ancient Egyptian crimes and criminals, meticulously recreating a series of crimes, from grave robbing, false embalming, necrophilia, and bestiality to a re-creation of the murder of Tutankhamun, reassessing and rejecting the evidence for his murder. It also introduces readers to some of the inhabitants of Deir el Medina, the dwelling place of the craftsmen who constructed the tombs of the Valleys of the Kings and Queens.
