Summary

El descubrimiento del siglo 

El legado de una civilización inigualable  

El tesoro de Tutankhamón es uno de los temas más fascinantes de la  egiptología, pero la biografía de quienes sacaron a la luz el increíble mundo del antiguo Egipto no se queda atrás. En Cosas maravillosas no solo se habla del Faraón Niño y del contexto en el que vivió, sino  también de la empresa arqueológica más grande de todos los tiempos: la  expedición que culminó con el hallazgo de su sepultura intacta el 4 de  noviembre de 1922 gracias a Howard Carter y Lord Carnarvon. Por entonces, la ciencia de la egiptología tenía apenas un siglo de  existencia, y se enfrentaban a un reto histórico de enorme complejidad. Aquí revivimos aquella aventura incomparable que conjugó intereses  políticos, problemas de conciencia y grandes avances científicos.

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION

The discovery of the century. A unique civilization's legacy.

Tutankhamun’s treasure is one of the most fascinating key topics in Egyptology, but the biography of those who brought to light the incredible world of Ancient Egypt is not far behind.
 
Wonderful Things not only talks about of The Boy Pharaoh and the context in which he lived, but also about the greatest archaeological enterprise of all times: the expedition that culminated in the discovery of his intact tomb on November 4, 1922, thanks to Howard Carter and Lord Carnarvon. At that time, the science of Egyptology was barely a century old, and faced a historical challenge of enormous complexity. Here we revive that incomparable adventure that combined political interests, problems of conscience and great scientific advances.
