Forgotten for over three thousand years, despite a reign that lasted only a decade, Tutankhamun is certainly the most famous of all the pharaohs in the history of Egypt thanks to the fabulous treasure discovered thanks to the intuition and perseverance of the archaeologist Howard Carter and the generous support of his patron Lord Carnarvon.
In Tutankhamun's tomb, the smallest in the Valley of the Kings, over four thousand artefacts were found, splendid jewels, magical amulets, chests full of precious objects, thrones, ceremonial beds, refined alabaster vases, and the famous golden funerary mask massive.
In this book, practical and easy to handle almost like a guide, it tells of Egypt in the New Kingdom, the era in which Tutankhamun lived, of the origins and family of the young king and of the incredible discovery of the tomb.
Then follows a careful and accurate description of many of the objects belonging to the extraordinary funerary objects of the child pharaoh.
More than 200 photographs allow you to admire a priceless heritage; maps and a faithful reconstruction of the tomb constitute a further enrichment to better approach this treasure of eternity.
