King Tutankhamun: The Treasures of the Tomb
The tomb of Tutankhamun, with its breathtaking treasures, remains the most sensational archaeological find of all time. This brilliantly illustrated volume, published to accompany the exhibition at The 02 in London, takes the reader through Tutankhamun's tomb room-by-room in the order that it was discovered and excavated by Howard Carter, illuminating the tomb's most magnificent artifacts, as well as all of the objects in the Tut exhibition. 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. This sumptuous volume is the definitive record of Tutankhamun's glittering legacy.
