The tomb of Tutankhamun (Tut.ankh.Amen), uncovered by the fifth Earl of Carnarvon and Howard Carter in 1922, was the greatest archaeological find the world has ever seen. Though entered by thieves in antiquity, the burial of the king lay intact within its nest of coffins and funerary shrines when these two intrepid archaeologists discovered it. This book, originially published in 1933, is the third volume of Carter’s magnificent trilology describing the excavation of the two stone chambers in which were gathered many of the boy-king’s most splendid funerary treasures.
