About the Author:

Carl Nicholas Reeves is a English Egyptologist, with the Egyptian Expedition, University of Arizona.

From Library Journal:

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.

Book Description Thames Hudson Ltd, United Kingdom, 1995. Paperback. Condition: New. Reprint. Language: English . Brand New Book. The tomb of Tutankhamun, with its treasures, has exerted a hold over the popular imagination ever since its discovery in 1922. This book is a detailed and comprehensive account of this great archaeological discovery. The story of the boy-king, buried in splendour at the height of Egyptian civilization; the determined quest for his tomb by Howard Carter and Lord Carnarvon; the unforeseen riches eventually revealed - these are important events in the history of archaeology. However, despite the publicity at the time of the discovery and since - made more intriguing by the linking of Carnarvon s early death with the legend of the pharoah s curse - it remains a story only partly told. Carter never produced a complete account of his excavations. The Tutankhamun exhibitions of the 1960 s and 1970 s generated a spate of books but none added significantly to what Carter had already published about the tomb. This book is a revealing account of the subject. Seller Inventory # AA29780500278109
