Publisher: Virgin Books; (2002).The tomb of Tutankhamun was undoubtedly among the greatest archaeological discoveries of all time, and everyone knows about the troubles which beset this remarkable find. The untimely death of Lord Carnarvon just after the opening of the tomb, and his appetite for the occult, swiftly gave rise to rumors of a curse. Also the presence of certain art treasures in museums across the United States provides evidence that Howard Carter and his aristocratic patron removed priceless objects from the tomb. What is not so well known is that among the wonderful treasures Carter and Carnarvon unearthed were also rumored to be papyri that held the "true account" of the biblical Exodus from Egypt. Why did Carter threaten to reveal this volatile information to the public at a meeting with a British official in Cairo shortly after the discovery of the tomb? At a time when Arab hostility towards Britain's support for the establishment of a Jewish homeland in Palestine was spilling on to the streets of Jerusalem and Jaffa, such actions on the part of the hot-headed Englishman could have caused untold chaos across the Middle East. The existence of the controversial papyri and the background to their explosive contents is the subject of this book, which explores the age of Tutankhamun and its relationship with the Biblical Exodus story. It follows the plight of Israel from its captivity at the hands of Pharoah through to the events surrounding the establishment of the modern Jewish state of Israel, covering the Exodus from Egypt, the conquest of Canaan and the origins of the Jewish religion. Not only do these papyri potentially question Israel's rights in Palestine, but the book argues they could have changed world history had their contents been disclosed. Moreover, in the knowledge that Lord Carnarvon exhibited distinct signs of toxic poisoning in his final days, and the fact that he knew full well of the discovery of the papyri, the authors suggest that foul play cannot be ruled out.

PUBLISHER REVIEW: REVIEW: Focusing its startling argument on lost papyrus documents found in the tomb, "Tutankhamun: The Exodus Conspiracy" questions the historical wisdom and biblical evidence of the Exodus, investigating the issues of land ownership and occupation which are still so topical in the Middle East today. In 1924, Howard Carter; the discoverer of the tomb, threatened to reveal the contents of the papyri discovered therein, but was dissuaded. An earlier attempt to use the documents for personal gain may have involved the Earl of Carnarvon; Carter's aristocratic patron, who died under mysterious circumstances in 1923. This account reveals the events surrounding his death, as well as the fate of the missing papyri, the origins of Zionist aspirations in Palestine and the origin of the infamous curse of Tutankhamun. The papyri are thought to contain a version of the Exodus story completely at odds with that of the Bible. They allege that those seen as Israelites under the command of Moses were in fact made up of a band of expelled priests; followers of the heretic king Akhenaten's fallen monotheistic religion and a large group of mixed Asiatic peoples. This is the most comprehensive overview and investigation into this alluring archaeological mystery. Co-Author Andrew Collins was born in 1957. He is an historical writer and the author of a number of books that challenge the way we perceive the past, including "From the Ashes of Angels", "Gods of Eden" and "Gateway to Atlantis". Andrew also lectures worldwide and is the organizer of the Questing Conference, Britain's largest annual conference on the subject of alternative history. Co-Author Chris Ogilvie-Herald is former editor of Quest For Knowledge magazine and co-organized 'The Giza Debate' in March 1998. His first book "Giza: The Truth" (co-authored with Ian Lawton) was published by Virgin in 1999 and received wide acclaim for its in-depth investigation of the people, politics and history behind the world's most famous archaeological site. PROFESSIONAL REVIEWS: REVIEW: The life of Tutankhamun, and the events surrounding the discovery of his tomb by Howard Carter and Lord Carnarvon, remains a most alluring archaeological mystery. Allegations surrounding the illegal entrance into the tomb and the looting of priceless treasures prior to the tomb's official opening, as well as whispers about a curse that led to the untimely death of Lord Carnarvon have persisted despite numerous attempts to get to the bottom of the mystery. "Tutankhamun: The Exodus Conspiracy" is a most timely and comprehensive review of these compelling issues, taking us closer to the truth than ever before. Starting with a remarkable recreation of Tutankhamun's funeral procession to the tomb of the Kings and the sealing of his tomb, the book covers the historical events surrounding his death before moving on to the events leading up to the arrival of the infamous Carter and Carnarvon. The authors then present the startling evidence that a threat made by Carter to British officials of the time, to publish the contents of papyrus documents found in the tomb which gave a "true account" of the Exodus of the Jews from Egypt, could have caused political chaos. This was at the time when the British government was instrumental is setting up the Jewish state of Israel. The authors conduct a thorough investigation into the historical basis for the Exodus and explore what the content of these missing scrolls could have been, the new perspective they provide on biblical history and the political repercussions this might have had. Was Tutankhamun the Pharaoh of the Exodus? Did the conquest of Canaan, as described in the Old Testament, ever take place? Their conclusions are startling, a story you won't want to miss! Set against the continuing delicate political situation in the Middle East, "Tutankhamun: The Exodus Conspiracy" is a gripping investigative read with widespread appeal. REVIEW: What secrets lie behind the controversy surrounding the opening of the tomb of Tutankhamun? Why did Howard Carter's revelation about the contents of papyrus documents found inside the tomb threaten chaos for the British Government of the time? Do the papyri reveal the true story of the biblical Exodus? The authors have gone where no academic has dared to venture, and have exposed the raw truth behind the archaeological history and politics of Egypt's greatest monuments. REVIEW: This book is the outcome of extensive research undertaken by two authors determined to get to the truth of what has become Egypt's and archaeology's most baffling mystery. This is the most comprehensive, detailed, and accurate book on the life and times of Tutankamun ever written, including the events pertaining to the discovery of his tomb. In this exciting and original intellectual quest, Andrew Collins has put important new facts before the public concerning the mysterious origins of human civilization. READER REVIEWS: REVIEW: This book really is a great piece of work. Despite their critics, Collins and Ogilvie-Herald offer one of the most comprehensive accounts of the discovery of Tutankhamun's tomb that has thus far been published. Background details on the main players are superb. Snippets of new or previously unpublished material make this a worthwhile read for anyone interested in the history, discovery and excavation of Tutankhamun's tomb. Their treatment of Tutankhamun's "lost papyri" amply demonstrates that it could have existed, at least in the mind of Howard Carter! The rest of the book deals with the Amarna Period and the biblical Exodus, which leads to an alternative explanation for the origins of the Jews and the eventual formation of the State of Israel. REVIEW: Collins and Ogilvie-Herald present a very plausible investigation into, not only the real story of the discovery of Tutankhamun's tomb, but also the significance of his "lost" papyri. The level of research, detail and presentation is quite impressive and this alone makes the book worth reading, whether or not you agree with their conclusions. REVIEW: This is an interesting new angle on the Tutankhamun story. Supposedly Howard Carter found some papyri in the tomb shortly after its discovery. These papyri supposedly contained new information on the early history of the Jewish people. The book is well written, contains some interesting archaeological information on the early history of the Jews and their religious beliefs, and also provides some previously unknown (at least to me) insights into the occult beliefs of Lord Carnarvon and others involved in the tomb's discovery.

Most of the items I offer come from the collection of a family friend who was active in the field of Archaeology for over forty years. However many of the items also come from purchases I make in Eastern Europe, India, and from the Levant (Eastern Mediterranean/Near East) from various institutions and dealers. Though I have always had an interest in archaeology, my own academic background was in sociology and cultural anthropology. After my retirement however, I found myself drawn to archaeology as well. Aside from my own personal collection, I have made extensive and frequent additions of my own via purchases on Ebay (of course), as well as many purchases from both dealers and institutions throughout the world - but especially in the Near East and in Eastern Europe. I spend over half of my year out of the United States, and have spent much of my life either in India or Eastern Europe. In fact much of what we generate on Yahoo, Amazon and Ebay goes to support The Hermitage Museum in St. Petersburg, as well as some other worthy institutions in Europe connected with Anthropology and Archaeology. I acquire some small but interesting collections overseas from time-to-time, and have as well some duplicate items within my own collection which I occasionally decide to part with. Though I have a collection of ancient coins numbering in the tens of thousands, my primary interest is in ancient jewelry. My wife also is an active participant in the "business" of antique and ancient jewelry, and is from Russia. I would be happy to provide you with a certificate/guarantee of authenticity for any item you purchase from me. There is a $2 fee for mailing under separate cover. Whenever I am overseas I have made arrangements for purchases to be shipped out via domestic mail. If I am in the field, you may have to wait for a week or two for a COA to arrive via international air mail. But you can be sure your purchase will arrive properly packaged and promptly - even if I am absent. And when I am in a remote field location with merely a notebook computer, at times I am not able to access my email for a day or two, so be patient, I will always respond to every email.
