With over 92 full colour illustrations, The Treasures of Tutankhamun brings to life the greatest treasures from the tomb of Tutankhamun. Featuring fifty of the most important objects on display today, each carefully selected object is presented with a full-colour illustration and accompanied by a short, accessible text explaining what the object is, where it was found and why it was buried with the young Pharaoh.

There are also quotes throughout the text from Howard Carter on his discovery of the tomb in 1922 and esteemed Egyptologist Garry Shaw gives an overview of the history of ancient Egypt and what we know about the life and times of the young king. He offers a graphic depiction of the dramatic story of the discovery and opening of the tomb by Howard Carter in 1922, and touches on the latest theories and scientific work that has taken place, as well as explaining what is still left to be discovered and the controversial nature of some of the latest interpretations.

This is the perfect pocket-sized companion for anyone visiting the Tutankhamun exhibition travelling around the world, the New Egyptian Museum in Giza or any of the renowned collections of Egyptology in museums across the world.
