Path to Tutankhamun: The discovery – the life and the mystery

Michael E. Habicht

Research output: Book/ReportBook


100 years of the discovery of Tutankhamun and you don't have the time or motivation to read dozens of books and even more specialised articles, some of which are difficult to research? Then this introductory book offers you the necessary basic information on the important aspects and gives you the literature references for citations and a possible deepening of a topic. The book is aimed at students, journalists and interested parties who are looking for the really important basic knowledge about Tutankhamun's life, his death, the discovery and the excavation team. In the book everything important is summarised briefly and to the point. In addition, there are the most important illustrations of the excavation, which one should know and the stories connected with them. A selected, updated bibliography of English, French and German specialist literature rounds off the book. English, illustrations in black and white.
