£6.99

This series of hilarious fictional diaries put us inside the heads of hapless figures from history. Ahmed is an apprentice photographer in Egypt who becomes involved in Howard Carter and Lord Carnarvon’s hunt for the final resting place of the boy pharaoh Tutankhamun and his treasures.

Will Ahmed help the team to uncover Tutankhamun’s tomb? And will he fall victim to the tomb’s supposed curse? Come to think of it, given all the disasters he keeps causing, is he cursed already?

‘Get Real’ fact boxes featured throughout, as well as a timeline, historical biographies and a glossary in the endmatter, provide historical context and further information.
