Tutankhamun - 100 years of discovery of his tomb
Can you see something ...?
Yes, wonderful things!
The famous words of Howard Carter when he went through a hole in the antechamber peeked.
The textbook describes the discovery and exploration of the tomb of Pharaoh Tutankhamun in an exciting and comprehensive manner. The life of the excavators, Howard Carter and George Herbert, Earl of Carnarvon is presented and their systematic search for Tutankhamun, which began in 1917/18 and was rewarded with the discovery of the grave in 1922.
The latest research and the question of whether there are more chambers that have not yet been found are presented (The Theory of Nicholas Reeves).
In the second part of the book, the artistically and historically most important objects from the grave treasure are presented and analyzed.
The third part is devoted to the reconstruction of the life of Tutankhamun. Who were his parents? How did he die? Was it murder? Or an accident?
A longer section is devoted to the reception of Tutankhamun in modern culture, as is the legendary curse of the pharaoh. Numerous references make the book an important reference work. Updated and expanded edition. Numerous illustrations in color and black and white.
