Beautiful, mysterious, and tragic, Cleopatra remains one of the most mesmerizing women of all time—and here is her story, based on the latest archaeological research. Secrets unfold in the official companion book to the exhibition co-sponsored by National Geographic, which opened in Philadelphia in May 2010 and will tour the United States for several years. Written by the inimitable Zahi Hawass in collaboration with underwater archaeologist Franck Goddio, this richly illustrated book chronicles the life of Cleopatra and the centuries-long quest to learn more about the queen and her tumultuous era, the last pharaonic period of Egyptian history. For the crowds nationwide who will visit the blockbuster exhibit, as well as fans of popular illustrated histories such as this, Cleopatra and the Lost Treasures of Egypt holds rare glimpses and stunning revelations from the life of a star-crossed queen.

    Comments about Cleopatra:

    I bought this for myself. The pictures are beautiful. Explanations and hypothesis are presented clearly and with background necessary to further understanding.

    This is a book I'll go back to just for the wonder and fun of it.
