On 26 November 1922, Howard Carter and Lord Carnarvon discovered the tomb of Tutankhamun. The world was entranced. Never before had a tomb been found in such perfect condition, with all the richness of its contents still intact. The stories that have since grown up around the discovery of the tomb and of the boy king who lay undisturbed for over three thousand years have become legendary and continue to fire imaginations around the world.
Tutankhamun tells those stories, and uncovers the reality behind them. It details the discovery of the tomb, drawing on the personal archives of Howard Carter himself. It also puts Tutankhamun’s short life into context by describing and explaining the rituals of life in ancient Egypt.
