The Private Lives of the PharaohsBook - 2000
This fascinating investigation, which accompanies a television series, uses the results of modern scientific analytical techniques to uncover new personal details about Egypt's most famous pharaohs. Tyldesley focuses on three mysteries: the identity of the builders of the Great Pyramids, including questions of how and why they did it, reasons why the 18th dynasty died out, and the identity of a mummified female temple singer. The scientific material, including DNA research and facial reconstruction, is presented in an extremely readable manner and brings characters such as Tutankhamun and Akhenaten to life.
