Egypt by Ferdinand Fairfax( Visual )

7 editions published between 2005 and 2007 in English and held by 251 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Filmed on location, Egypt dramatizes the stories of the intrepid adventurers and explorers who explored Egypt in the 19th and 20th centuries.

The first story tells of the adventures of Howard Carter, who found the tomb of Tutankhamun in 1923 in the Valley of the Kings near Luxor. The second features the exploits of Giovanni Battista Belzoni, who excavated the splendid Temple of Rameses II at Abu Simbel. Finally, the account of the 'Father of Egyptology' Jean-Francois Champollion, the young French genius who--aided by the Rosetta Stone--decoded the hieroglyphs and revealed an ancient and mysterious faith that had been lost to the world for 3,000 years
