This compact, beautifully illustrated book brings to life the greatest treasures from the tomb of Tutankhamun. Fifty of the most important objects discovered in the tomb are accompanied by short, easy-to-understand texts that explain the historical importance of these incredible ancient artifacts while instilling a sense of wonder.Egyptologist Garry Shaw gives an insightful overview of the world of Ancient Egypt into which Tutankhamun was born, as well as the key events of his short life. Each of the carefully selected objects in this book is presented with a full-page color image accompanied by an explanation of its symbolic importance, intended use, as well as the reasons why it would have been buried with the pharaoh. Beyond the included artifacts, this book also depicts the dramatic events leading up to the discovery of the tomb in 1922. This pocket-sized guide is the perfect companion for anyone fascinated by the child pharaoh, or anyone who plans to visit the new Grand Egyptian Museum in Giza, Cairo, or any of the Tutankhamun exhibitions touring the world today.
