The Tomb of Tutankhamun: Volume 3: The Annexe and Treasury

The discovery of the resting place of the great Egyptian PharaohTutankhamun [Tut.ankh.Amen] in November 1922 by Howard Carter andthe fifth Earl of Carnarvon was the greatest archaeological findthe world had ever seen. Despite its plundering by thieves inantiquity, the burial of the king lay intact with its nest ofcoffins and funerary shrines, surrounded by a mass of burialequipment arranged in three peripheral chambers.After the long search for the tomb and its initial discovery andexcavation (volume 1), after the discovery of the king's restingplace and body (volume 2), the third and final volume of HowardCarter's account sees him reach the treasury, full of theincredible riches that the Pharaoh had sort to take with him to theworld beyond and which had seemed lost to time before Carter'shistoric discovery. Now available in the BloomsburyRevelations series, the book includes over 150 photographs ofthe treasury and its contents.
