Lost Tomb by Kent R Weeks. There are those who might find it difficult to get excited about Egyptology; about looking for the remains of the long dead; about spending long hours or weeks digging in the dust for bits and pieces of pottery. But Weeks is able to do just that. It is because of his immense interest in his work that he can spin this electrifying account of working deep within the earth in the heat, in the dirt, in the humidity, dodging scorpions and the occasional snake. This book will delight those with an interest in ancient history and Egypt. I found this book eminently readable even though I have no great particular interest in the subject. That’s a tribute to how well and riveting this book is.
