King Tut's Curse! by Jacqueline Morley
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Looking in detail at each case attributed to the Curse, this title examines how events were interpreted at the time, in addition to looking at their likely scientific causes. Fantastic, humorous, full-colour illustrations add a vibrant and exciting look which complements the clearly written text. On the day the tomb was opened, Carter's pet canary was swallowed by a cobra - cobra's being one of the protectors of the Pharaoh; at the exact time of Lord Carnarvon's death all the lights in Cairo went out and at the same time, in England, Carnarvon's three-legged dog howled and dropped dead. Was the Curse of Pharaoh really to blame? Burating with detailed observations, this title explores the myths behind the mysterious deaths in an accessible and entertaining way. A full glossary and index makes this title ideal for both school and home.
