When it was found in 1922, the 3,300-year old tomb of Tutankhamun sent shockwaves around the world, turning the boy-king into a household name overnight and kickstarting an international media obsession that endures to this day.

From culture and academia to politics and the heritage industry, it's impossible to imagine the twentieth century without the discovery of Tutankhamun and yet so much of the story remains untold. Here, for the first time, Christina Riggs interweaves compelling historical analysis with vignettes drawn from encounters with Tutankhamun to offer a bold new history of the young Pharaoh who has as much to tell us about our world as his own.
