The purpose of this book is to describe by text and illustration the extraordinary tomb of this seemingly unimportant king of the late Eighteenth Dynasty, with its exceptional contents. An introductory chapter sets the historical scene for the reign of Tutankhamun, placing it in the context of the anciently reviled period of heresy associated with King Akhenaten, and its disintegration after his death. Tutankhamun ruled on the point of the change back to a traditional Egyptian regime, with the rehabilitation of the old gods, a change, which was consolidated after his death by his general Horemheb. A second chapter discusses the archaeology of the discovery of the tomb by Howard Carter in 1922. It will show, more clearly than has previously been appreciated, how Carter's obsession with the Valley of the Kings and, secondarily with the Amarna Period and its aftermath, developed from his earliest days in Egypt, the course of this search for 'the' royal tomb. The drama of the final season, with the discovery, the revelation of a virtually un-robbed royal tomb's contents, and the poignant death of the Earl of Caernarfon, provides the element of the Greek tragedy to this unique event. A large selection of the objects found in the tomb is described in the main body of the book. Colour photographs specially taken for this publication accompany the descriptive texts, which place the objects in their distinctive settings as exceptional example of the creativity of the ancient Egyptian artists and craftsmen.

A beatifully illustrated book chronicling some of the most recent archeological discoveries in Egypt. The astonishing discovery of the Valley of the Golden Mummies in Bahariya Oasis, deep in the Western Desert of Egypt, is considered perhaps the most spectacular Egyptian archeological discovery since that of Tutankhamun's tomb. This vast site was uncovered by accident, when a donkey stumbled intothe opening of one of the many underground tombs of a 2,000-year-old cemetery believed to cover approximately two square miles. Never before have so many mummies been discovered at a single site: multi-chambered tombs dating from the Roman period in Egypt held rows of mummies, many adorned withgilded masks and painted cases, others wrapped in linen. Whole families were found placed together. Jewelry, pottery, amulets, and other artifacts were also uncovered, and it is estimated that as many as 10,000 mummies may ultimately be uncovered from the site, which has escaped plunderers and isthus remarkably intact. Featuring some 250 color illustrations, most of which have never before been published, this exciting book reveals the lives, customs, and religious beliefs of this until now little-known community. As such, it will both fascinate and enthrall all those with an interest in the ancient history ofEgypt.
