This sumptuous book presents rarely seen antiquities from the finest collection of ancient Egyptian masterpieces anywhere in the world, culled from the unparalleled holdings of the Cairo Museum and captured in lavish full-color photographs. From the tomb of the boy-king Tutankhamun to new discoveries by author Zahi Hawass, head of Egypt’s Supreme Council of Antiquities, Hidden Treasures of Ancient Egypt tells the fascinating tale of 150 years of archaeological discovery. Exciting finds span 3,000 years of brilliant culture, from the first dynasty of the Old Kingdom to the Ptolemaic pharaohs who followed Alexander the Great. Here are extraordinary statues and mysterious sarcophagi, death masks of legendary rulers and the mummies who wore them into the afterlife, religious artifacts and everyday objects—each an important and colorful piece in a dazzling mosaic of antiquity’s oldest and most enduring civilization.
