More About The Murder of Tutankhamen by Bob Brier
 
 
 
Overview
One of the nation s most respected Egyptologists examines the compelling mystery behind the death of King Tutankhamen.
Can the truth be known about a possible murder that would have been committed 3,000 years ago? Respected Egyptologist Bob Brier, specialist in paleopathology and host of the Learning Channel s acclaimed series The Great Egyptians, believes it can. Skillfully combining known historical events with evidence gathered by advanced technologies, Brier has re-created the suspenseful story of religious upheaval and political intrigue that likely resulted in the murder of the teenage king Tutankhamen. . . . Breathing life into old bones and artifacts, Brier examines all available evidence to arrive at the most reasonable explanation for a tragic event, an explanation that, he says, is testable through the use of current technology on the mummified remains of the ancient king. Booklist (starred review)
Brier's 3,000-year-old mystery steadily draws the reader into the curious and exotic world of Egyptology. . . . By the time you finish his intrigue-filled reconstruction of Tutankhamen s world which includes such elements as teenage love, religious heresy, the Orwellian rewriting of history and the desperate pleas of a terrified queen you risk coming to care a good deal about the young Pharaoh s fate. . . . We can be grateful to Dr. Brier for showing that even a mystery dating to the fourteenth century B.C. is subject to engrossing examination. The New York Times
