about this book

Tutankhamun has mesmerized the world ever since Howard Carter's dramatic discovery of his treasure-filled tomb in the Valley of the Kings in 1922.
In this richly illustrated book, Egypt's leading archaeologist chronicles the Boy King and the royal dynasty from which he descended. From Tut's grandfather, the Sun King Amenhotep III, to Nefertiti, still remembered as one of history's legendary beauties, Zahi Hawass brings the world of Tutankhamun to life with an authoritative text highlighted by scores of stunning photographs, including archival images from the first great era of Egyptian archaeology.
