Zahi Hawass provides a unique perspective on the tomb of Tutankhamun, room-by-room, in this new fully illustrated edition.
The tomb of Tutankhamun, with its fabulous treasures, remains the most sensational archaeological find of all time. This brilliantly illustrated volume takes the reader through Tutankhamun’s tomb room-by-room, in the order that it was discovered and excavated by Howard Carter in 1922. Dr Zahi Hawass imbues the text with his own inimitable flavour, imagining how the uncovering and opening of the tomb must have felt for Carter, while Sandro Vannini’s extraordinary photographs reproduce the objects in infinitesimal detail. With stunning full-colour spreads and fold-outs throughout, this sumptuous volume is the definitive record of Tutankhamun’s glittering legacy.
‘Majestic … the book leaves the reader awe-stricken at the sophistication of ancient Egyptian civilisation, both culturally and creatively’
