Synopsis

The Treasures of Tutankhamun by Jaromir Malek

Ancient Egypt has been a source of fascination for many civilizations. For centuries, grave robbers and archaeologists have attempted to plunder the hidden treasures of the tombs of the Pharaohs; then, on 26 November 1922, Howard Carter and Lord Carnarvon discovered the tomb of King Tutankhamun. The stories that have since grown up around the discovery of the tomb and of the boy king who lay undisturbed for over 3,000 years have become legendary and continue to fire imaginations around the world. The Treasures of Tutankhamum puts Tutankhamun's short life into context by describing and explaining the complexities of life in Ancient Egypt and details the actual discovery and original expedition, drawing on the personal archives of Howard Carter himself.
