Houston Chronicle: Here is the definitive account of the Valley of the Kings, visited by millions of tourists and famous
throughout the world as the burial place of the great New Kingdom pharaohs. Some eighty tombs were dug
in the valley at the height of Egyptian power more than 3,000 years ago, their chambers stocked with
incredible treasures and decorated with magnificent wall paintings. It was here, in 1922, that Howard
Carter stumbled upon the virtually intact tomb of the boy-king, Tutankhamun. Recently the valley has
made international headlines with the discovery of the burial chapels of Ramesses the Great's many
sons; The Complete Valley of the Kings is the first book to publish an account of these remarkable
findings. Reeves and Wilkinson, both acknowledged authorities on the valley, bring together the art,
archaeology and history in one exciting account.
About the Author: Nicholas Reeves has written numerous books on ancient Egypt, including The Complete Tutankhamun.
