Among the treasures of Tutankhamun were rumored to be papyri that held the 'true account' of the biblical Exodus of the Israelites from Egypt. Howard Carter's threat to make the contents known to the world could have caused chaos across the Middle East. The life of Tutankhamun, and the events surrounding the discovery of his tomb by Howard Carter and Lord Carnarvon, remains the most alluring archaeological mystery. Allegations surrounding the illegal entrance into the tomb and the looting of priceless treasures prior to the tomb’s official opening, as well as whispers about a curse that led to the untimely death of Lord Carnarvon have persisted despite numerous attempts to get to the bottom of the mystery. But --Tutankhamun: The Exodus Conspiracy-- is the most timely and comprehensive review of these compelling issues - taking us closer to the truth than ever before. Starting with a remarkable recreation of Tutankhamun's funeral procession to the tomb of the Kings and the sealing of his tomb, the book covers the historical events surrounding his death before moving on to the events leading up to the arrival of the infamous Carter and Carnarvon. The authors then present the startling evidence that a threat made by Carter to British officials of the time, to publish the contents of papyrus documents found in the tomb which gave a 'true account' of the Exodus of the Jews from Egypt, could have caused political chaos. This was at the time when the British government was instrumental is setting up the Jewish state of Israel. The authors conduct a thorough investigation into the historical basis for the Exodus and explore what the content of these missing scrolls could have been, the new perspective they provide on biblical history and the political repercussions this might have had. Was Tutankhamun the Pharaoh of the Exodus? Did the conquest of Canaan, as described in the Old Testament, ever take place? Imported from Britain.
