The discovery of the tomb of Tutankhamun is a landmark in archaeological history and an event which yielded a treasure of unimaginable significance. On November 4, 1922, Howard Carter found the first sign of what proved to be Tutankhamun's tomb, but it was not until November 26 that a second sealed doorway was reached and the tomb breached after more than 3,000 years of undisturbed rest. Carter's diary, reprinted here, captures the drama of the moment of discovery and details the events which led up to the unearthing of the boy king, as well as the key events of the decade-long excavation project that followed. This new edition is introduced by distinguished Egyptologist John Romer, who reappraises Carter's achievement and places it within current attitudes towards the discovery and removal of archaeological finds.

This richly illustrated book of vintage photographs commemorates one of the most memorable episodes in the history of archaeology: the discovery and exploration in 1922 of the tomb of the ancient Egyptian pharaoh Tutankhamun (Dynasty 18, ruled ca. 1336-1327 B.C.). These photographs, documenting every stage in the process of discovery, were taken by the renowned archaeological photographer Harry Burton. Burton was a staff member of the Metropolitan Museum Egyptian Expedition when he was "lent" to Howard Carter, the famed excavator of Tutankhamun's tomb. From the rock-cut steps leading down to the entrance passage, to the opening of the sealed chambers inside, to the first view of the contents of the tomb and the removal of the objects, Burton's beautiful black-and-white photographs show thousands of the richly made and decorated objects found in the tomb. Carefully reproduced from Burton's original prints, the photographs are accompanied by new descriptive text written by two prominent Egyptologists with extensive knowledge of the history of Tutankhamun and the contents of his tomb.

The purpose of this book is to describe by text and illustration the extraordinary tomb of this seemingly unimportant king of the late Eighteenth Dynasty, with its exceptional contents. An introductory chapter sets the historical scene for the reign of Tutankhamun, placing it in the context of the anciently reviled period of heresy associated with King Akhenaten, and its disintegration after his death. Tutankhamun ruled on the point of the change back to a traditional Egyptian regime, with the rehabilitation of the old gods, a change, which was consolidated after his death by his general Horemheb. A second chapter discusses the archaeology of the discovery of the tomb by Howard Carter in 1922. It will show, more clearly than has previously been appreciated, how Carter's obsession with the Valley of the Kings and, secondarily with the Amarna Period and its aftermath, developed from his earliest days in Egypt, the course of this search for 'the' royal tomb. The drama of the final season, with the discovery, the revelation of a virtually un-robbed royal tomb's contents, and the poignant death of the Earl of Caernarfon, provides the element of the Greek tragedy to this unique event. A large selection of the objects found in the tomb is described in the main body of the book. Colour photographs specially taken for this publication accompany the descriptive texts, which place the objects in their distinctive settings as exceptional example of the creativity of the ancient Egyptian artists and craftsmen.
