Bob Brier—a.k.a. Mr. Mummy—one of the world’s foremost Egyptologists, gives a compelling introduction to the world’s greatest archaeological discovery. He explores the research that has taken place in the one hundred years since the discovery of Tutankhamun’s tomb – from the several objects in the tomb made of meteoritic iron that came from outer space to new evidence that shows that Tutankhamun may actually have been a warrior who went into battle. Additionally, Brier examines how the discovery of the tomb influenced Egyptian politics and contributed to the downfall of colonialism in Egypt.
