Overview

Focussing its startling argument on lost papyrus documents found in the tomb, Tutankhamun questions the historical wisdom and biblical evidence of the Exodus, investigating the issues of land ownership and occupation which are still so topical in the Middle East today.

In 1924, Howard Carter - the discoverer of the tomb - threatened to reveal the contents of the papyri discovered therein, but was dissuaded. An earlier attempt to use the documents for personal gain may have involved the Earl of Carnarvon - Carter's aristocratic patron - who died under mysterious circumstances in 1923. This account reveals the events surrounding his death, as well as the fate of the missing papyri, the origins of Zionist aspirations in Palestine and the origin of the infamous curse of Tutankhamun.

The papyri are thought to contain a version of the Exodus story completely at odds with that of the Bible. They allege that those seen as Israelites under the command of Moses were in fact made up of a band of expelledpriests: followers of the heretic king Akhenaten's fallen monotheistic religion and a large group of mixed Asiatic peoples. This is the most comprehensive overview and investigation into this alluring archaeological mystery.
