Tutankhamun's Egypt

Series: Shire Egyptology (19)
The discovery in 1922 of Tutankhamun's tomb captured the imagination of the public. An Egyptian pharaoh surrounded by his golden funerary equipment and luxurious palace furnishings had remained hidden from sight for three thousand years, and the beauty of his gold mask and coffins and other treaures was unsurpassed. This book interprets the objects in Tutankhamun's tomb, the paintings on its walls and its location, to reveal its full significance.
