This brilliantly illustrated volume takes the reader through Tutankhamun's tomb room-by-room in the order that it was discovered and excavated by Howard Carter in 1922. Dr Zahi Hawass imbues the text with his own inimitable flavor, imagining how the uncovering and opening of the tomb must have felt for carter ,while Sandro Vannini's extraordinary photographs reproduce the objects in infinitesimal details. With stunning full-color spreads and foldouts throughout the book, this sumptuous volume is the definitive record of Tutankhamun's glittering legacy." -- Back cover.
