In the Summer, 2013 issue, Kmt features a review by archaeologist Donald P. Ryan – who has re-excavated several tombs in the Valley of the Kings originally discovered nearly a century before by Theodore Davis.
Ryan writes: “Adams’ biography switches between tales of archaeological intrigue and the often complicated and sometimes sordid details of Davis’s professional and private lives . . . Anyone with an interest in the history of Egyptian archaeology should find this volume fascinating and full of little known interesting facts and insights . . . The full story of Theodore M. Davis has finally been told, and the author should be congratulated for his detailed research and engaging storytelling.”
