“Wonderful things “

Carnarvon asked, “Can you see anything?” Carter replied: “Yes, wonderful things”

This is the famous exchange of words between Howard Carter, the Egyptian archeologist and his sponsor, Lord Carnarvon, as Carter peered into a small hole made in the doorway to Tutankhamun’s tomb. The rest is history.

Tutankhamun’s father was Akhenaten IV, but it seems that Nefertiti was not his mother!

The Blue Crown is set just a few years before the birth of The Boy King, and gives the reader an insight into 18th Dynasty Egypt and the rule of Akhenaten.
