In May 1996, a donkey stumbled into an opening in the sand in the Egyptian desert, revealing a vast multi-chambered tomb containing more than 10,000 mummies. The excavation, in what became known as the "Valley of the Golden Mummies", made front-page news across the world. With 250 full-colour photos of the remarkable treasures, this book documents the extraordinary finds at the site. Alongside these images, Dr Zahl Hawass, Field Director at the Bahariya Oasis project, recounts the exciting story of the excavation and the importance of this find.
