by Guy Burt
based on the true story of Howard Carter
Down on his heels archaeologist Howard Carter stumbles upon evidence of an undiscovered tomb of one of Egypt’s forgotten Pharaohs, Tutankhamun, right at the heart of the Valley of the Kings. Other archaeologists dismiss Carter’s theories as impossible, a romantic dream: the valley, they say, has been dug out. Only one man believes in Carter’s dream, and put up the money he needs: Lord Carnarvon, a born gambler and thrill-seeker. Together, this unlikely pair overcome all odds – corrupt officials and rival digs, World War, Revolution – in pursuit of this impossible dream. It seems as if nothing can come between them – until Carter falls in love with Carnarvon’s daughter, Evelyn.
