The tomb of Tutankhamun, with its breathtaking treasures, remains the most sensational archaeological find of all time. This brilliantly illustrated volume takes the reader through Tutankhamuns tomb room-by-room in the order that it was discovered and excavated by Howard Carter. 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 Vanninis extraordinary photographs reproduce the objects in infinitesimal detail. This sumptuous volume is the definitive record of Tutankhamuns glittering legacy.
Zahi Hawass is Secretary General of the Supreme Council of Antiquities, Egypt. He has written scores of books and articles on ancient Egypt, including The Royal Tombs of Egypt and his autobiography, Secrets from the Sand, both published by Thames & Hudson.
