Carl Nicholas Reeves is a English Egyptologist, with the Egyptian Expedition, University of Arizona.
As the owner and occupant of the most spectacular tomb to be excavated under modern archaeological conditions, Tutankhamun is synonymous with the mystery and wealth of ancient Egypt. In this comprehensive study, Tut's life and background, the architecture of the tomb, and the artifacts discovered in situ are examined in some detail. Archaeology books tend to be either pretty or important, but Reeves has produced a beautiful book with significant new information. The extent, wealth, and quality of the illustrations alone make it an important and attractive book. The text synthesizes the most current findings in the field. If your library can afford only one book on Tut, this one is it.
