This is a masterful study of the objects discovered inside the tomb of the legendary Egyptian pharaoh Tutankhamun. The book begins with a brief overview of the discovery of the tomb and then proceeds to talk about each room within. Accompanying each room section of the book are the objects found inside them. And every item is beautifully photographed and discussed in detail.

This book is every bit as sumptuous as the tomb itself. A nice way to spend an afternoon contemplating the wonders of ancient Egypt.… (més)

Tutankhamun, as cheesy as this may be, is one of my favorite pharaohs to talk about when discussing Ancient Egypt. This book was very insightful about the boy king and Howard Carter’s famous discovery. I had visited the Treasures of the Golden Pharaoh at the California Science Center twice, and I was enthralled each time by the magnificence of the artifacts. The book was very detailed and clear, and I highly recommend it if you can get your hands on it:

There are many books that focus on the discovery of King Tut's tomb, but there do not seem to be as many about the life of the Boy King himself. This book begins with a chapter on Howard Carter's discovery of King Tut's tomb, but then backtracks to give context of what was going on in Egypt before Tutankhamun was born, followed by chapters on his life, death and burial, and what happened in Egypt afterwards. The author is an Egyptian archeologist and his enthusiasm for his topic practically leaps off of the page. Reasoning behind current and rejected theories of aspects of the Boy King's life (and death) are woven into the narration, but the author does not hesitate to point out that there is still much that we do not know and have yet to find out. This book not only serves as a resource about King Tutankhamun, but also an demonstration on how archaeologists think.… (més)
