The Lost Tomb begins with Kent Weeks beginnings and his interest of being an archaeologist since childhood. Needless to say, Weeks dream came true. Weeks was working on the Theban Mapping Project and the project's aim is to know the location of every tomb in the area. While working on the project Weeks and his team rediscovered KV5.Kent Weeks goes into explaining the excavations of KV5 and the excitment surrounding it all. I don't read nonfiction very often. I like reading fiction much better. But, I can say I really enjoyed The Lost Tomb. I've always had an interest in Egypt and this book has greatly renewed my interest in Egypt. The Lost Tomb was an exciting and interesting read. I recommend it to anyone interested in Egypt.
