The discovery and excavation of Tutankhamun's tomb is one of the most famous archeological finds in history. But compelling evidence suggests the story we know is a sham—Howard Carter and Lord Carnavon actually discovered Tutankhamun's tomb several years before they told the world they did, looted it. re-sealed it, then led the world's media back to the site to claim their place in history. This book tells the story of the skullduggery that went on in the Valley of the Kings and how the famous Mummy's Curse, far from being something mystical, could well have been a systematic way of getting rid of those who were about to blow the cover on the secret of the find, and the secrets of the tomb.

Tutankhamun has fascinated the world ever since Howard Carter's spectacular discovery of his treasure-filled tomb in the Valley of the Kings in 1922. Egypt's leading Egyptologist, Zahi Hawass, here tells the story of this golden king, a short-lived pharaoh who came to the throne of Egypt as a child and died before the age of twenty, and of the royal dynasty that bred him. The reader meets Tutankhamun's grandparents, the Sun King Amenhotep III and his beautiful wife Tiye as well as the boy-king's 'heretic' father, Akhenaten, his stepmother Neferiti, and his half-sisters, the sun-kissed princesses of Amarna. Tutankhamun lived and died during one of the most fascinating periods in Egyptian history; this book provides a window into this extraordinary time of turmoil and treasure. The Golden Age of Tutankhamun is illustrated, primarily with photographs of objects from the traveling exhibit. "Tutankhamun and the Golden Beyond: Treasures from the Valley of the Kings," which takes objects from Cairo's Egyptian Museum collections to Switzerland and Japan. Many of these photographs were taken by National Geographic photographer Kenneth Garrett, supplemented by archival photographs from the era of the tomb's discovery, a fascinating period of transition - in archaeology as much as politics - between the age of colonialism and the dawn of Egyptian nationalism.

"Get ready for an amazing journey back in time, in search of a secret kept for 3300 years".The story of the Pharaoh Tutankhamun is one of the strangest to have ever come to life in the desert sand. In the early 1900's, a young girl named Elsa, having survived a terrible sandstorm in which her father dies, losses her memory. Her mother makes every effort to help her, but in vain. Then, in 1922, when the momentous discovery of the King Tut's tomb is making headlines everywhere, Elsa feels she must go there, to the Valley of the Kings, to try and piece together her past. She is convinced that she belongs to another era, but all her memories are fragmented, part of a confusing puzzle which, once she does manage to solve it, brings to light an exhilarating picture of that dark period in history.

Following the discovery of Tutankhamun's tomb in 1922, the story of the boy who became Pharaoh, died young, and was buried in splendor at the height of Egyptian civilization captivated generations. But there exists a wide discrepancy between that saga and what scholars have learned in the past few decades about the king's reign and its major significance for the history of Egypt. Marianne Eaton-Krauss, a leading authority on the boy king and the Amarna Period, guides readers through the recent findings of international research and the relevant documentation from a wide variety of sources, to create an accessible and comprehensive biography. Tracing Tutankhamun's life from birth to burial, she analyzes his parentage, his childhood as Prince Tutankhaten, his accession and change of name to Tutankhamun, his role in the restoration of the traditional cults and his own building projects, his death and burial, and the attitudes of his immediate successors to his reign. Illustrated with color and black-and-white images, the book includes extensive endnotes and selected bibliography, which will make it essential reading for students and scholars as well as anyone interested in Tutankhamun.

"What he writes has the stamp of first-hand knowledge and the grace of a sympathetic style. The world owes a debt of gratitude that the accident of the discovery of the tomb brought to it so painstaking a workman as the author--one who was willing to sacrifice the golden possibility of haste and fame to the slow accumulation of scientific knowledge."--The New York Times"Let me try and tell the story of it all. It will not be easy, for the dramatic suddenness of the initial discovery left me in a dazed condition, and the months that have followed have been so crowded with incident that I have hardly had time to think."Among the hundreds of books written about ancient Egypt and Tutankhamun, you won't find an equal to archaeologist Howard Carter's powerful book about his discovery. His great work in many ways remained unfinished.He left us, however, this remarkable document of discovery. The book is Carter's personal story of the greatest adventure of his life--one that has not been surpassed in a century of archaeology.In 1904, retired American lawyer, Theodore Davis, famously declared that The Valley of the Kings in Thebes had given up all of its secrets, leaving nothing more to be discovered. He relinquished his exclusive rights to dig in The Valley.But as Howard Carter states in this volume, "The history of The Valley has never lacked the dramatic element." Some 18 years later, Carter made the richest archaeological discovery in history within yards of where Davis had dug.The world immediately became obsessed with everything Tutankhamun. From architecture, to household goods, to fashion, a early 20th-century surge in fascination with ancient Egypt took hold across the globe.This is not a dry scientific treatment of the excavation or the artifacts. What he imparts with this book is a sense of excitement, wonder, and mystery set expertly into a concise context of history and Egyptology, captivating layperson and specialist alike, young or old.Intertwining notes on Egyptian gods, religion, mythology, and magic, Carter spins an alluring real-life tale, setting the context for Egyptian history and Tutankamun.For the first time this amazing work is available for Kindle. With a new Introduction and updated footnotes, you'll have more context to follow this book than Carter's original readers did. Much information that was yet to be understood or discovered in 1922 is included in the Introduction.
