This book presents the incredible story of the discovery of those 'wonderful things', and the splendour of the most memorial of all royal legends. Told with style and distinction, it includes previously unseen watercolours by Carter; the story of the relationship between Carter and his patrol, 5th Earl of Carnarvon and his daughter Lady Evelyn; new Foreword by Henrietta McCall of the British Museum; new Appendix devoted to the remarkable Almina Countess of Carnarvon, illegitimate daughter of Baron Alfred Rothschild, whose wedding dowry largely financed the search for the tomb and its excavation.
