Synopsis

Under Egypt's wind-swept sands, mummies and breathtaking treasure await those savvy and daring enough to seek them out. Intrepid archaeologist Zahi Hawass is one such adventurer, having made major discoveries in the pyramids at Giza and the Valley of the Golden Mummies. In Curse of the Pharaohs, Hawass details the secrets of ancient Egypt-and shows what it is like to be an archaeologist. From ancient germs and vipers to age-old curses and crumbling tombs, the dangers of his profession are real. But so too are the rewards. Uncovering artifacts that have gone thousands of years without seeing the light of day is the ultimate thrill-and something that Hawass not only lives for, but lives to share with a worldwide audience. Zahi Hawass has gained international fame for his many books and television appearances, and Curse of the Pharaohs continues his lifelong pursuit of revealing the mystery and intrigue of ancient Egypt.
