About This Class
The Search for Tutankhamun (Part 1): Howard Carter and the Valley of the Kings is aimed at history students, who are studying this period at school or university, as well as those of you that have a general interest in history (and Ancient Egyptian history in particular).

- Be given a detailed look at Howard Carter’s early life as an Egyptologist
- Discover Carter’s relationship with his patron, Lord Carnarvon
- Learn all about the history of the Valley of the Kings
- Find out about the many failed attempts to locate the Boy Pharaoh’s tomb prior to Carter’s discovery
So go ahead and enrol in my class and I look forward to seeing you on the inside

Very interesting class for those who are interested in Egyptian history. Thank you!
Live simply. Care deeply. Help cheerfully.
I also teach classes about course creation, online learning platforms and teaching, and recently, I launched the Writer Teacher Facebook Group as a place where self-published authors and online teachers can hang out to discuss how to make a significant income from your writing through the repurposing of content that you have already written in the form of online courses.

A Little Bit More About Me
My name is David James Ault and I am a British ex-pat living in Slovakia, in the heart of Europe, with my wonderful Slovak wife, our three children and our English Bullterrier, Shaggy.
Having graduated with a BSc (Hons) Degree in European Business, the first part of my career was spent in marketing, especially in the tourism industry, and during that time, I completed my Postgraduate Diploma in Marketing, at the CIM.
In 2001, I moved from the UK to Slovakia, where I set up a tourism portal about Slovakia and wrote travel related articles and books. I also began writing my first novel.
During the last 15 years, I have written non-fiction books in a variety of niches and set up a number of successful websites to promote my various interests. More recently, I have also been writing fiction and non-fiction books for teenagers and young adults and, in 2015, I set myself the goal of becoming a full-time Writer Teacher within the next couple of years.
I have an eclectic range of interests, including languages, writing, history, online marketing, design and travel. I also have a passion for cooking and eating healthy food, as well as the traditional Slovak dishes I have discovered, whilst living in the heart of Europe.
I have created a number of online courses for many of my niches and I have set up both the How To Publish An eBook and the Teach Someone A Lesson websites to impart some of the knowledge I have learned over the years to my students.
