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.

More than 3,000 years ago, King Tutankhamun's desiccated body was lovingly wrapped and sent into the future as an immortal god. After resting undisturbed for more than three millennia, King Tut's mummy was suddenly awakened in 1922. Archaeologist Howard Carter had discovered the boy-king's tomb, and the soon-to-be famous mummy's story--even more dramatic than King Tut's life--began. The mummy's "afterlife" is a modern story, not an ancient one. Award-winning science writer Jo Marchant traces the mummy's story from its first brutal autopsy in 1925 to the most recent arguments over its DNA. From the glamorous treasure hunts of the 1920s to today's high-tech scans in volatile modern Egypt, Marchant introduces us to the brilliant and sometimes flawed people who have devoted their lives to revealing the mummy's secrets, unravels the truth behind the hyped-up TV documentaries, and explains what science can and can't tell us about King Tutankhamun.

The Boy King's Journey through the Underworld Tutankhamun's royal voyage into paradise, as told by ancient Egyptian treasures Buried in the 14th century BCE but unearthed by Howard Carter in 1922, the objects entombed with Tutankhamun are an invaluable window into a long-extinct belief system. Seen today, they create an intricate picture of how people of the time viewed the perilous journey to paradise, a utopian Egypt that could only be entered following the final judgment. When acclaimed photographer Sandro Vannini started his work in Egypt in the late '90s, a technological revolution was about to unfold. Emerging technologies enabled him to document murals, tombs, and artifacts in unprecedented detail. Using the time-consuming and strenuous multi-shot technique, Vannini produced complete photographic reproductions that revealed colors in their original tones with vivid intensity. Through these extraordinary images, we discover the objects' quintessential features alongside the sophisticated and cleverly hidden details. In collaboration with a series of international exhibitions beginning in Los Angeles in 2018, this comprehensive guide marks the centenary of Carter's first excavations in the Valley of the Kings. Many of these invaluable works were damaged during the 2011 Egyptian uprising, some destroyed altogether--but fortunately endure in their full, timeless glory through Vannini's photographs. From offerings and rituals to Osiris and eternal life, Vannini's portfolio covers all facets of ancient Egyptian culture -- but it is Tuthankhamun's unique legacy that dominates these images. With texts by the photographer and chapter introductions from scholars in the field, Tutankhamun. The Journey through the Underworld puts much-debated mysteries to rest. The learned yet accessible forewords come from distinguished Egyptologists including Professor Salima Ikram and David P. Silverman, a researcher of over 40 years standing. Insightful narratives, resplendent images, and a contemporary standpoint make this title a fitting tribute to the boy king's odyssey, illuminating an epoch that spanned an unimaginable 6,000 years.

One of the nation’s most respected Egyptologists examines the compelling mystery behind the death of King Tutankhamen. “Can the truth be known about a possible murder that would have been committed 3,000 years ago? Respected Egyptologist Bob Brier, specialist in paleopathology and host of the Learning Channel’s acclaimed series The Great Egyptians, believes it can. Skillfully combining known historical events with evidence gathered by advanced technologies, Brier has re-created the suspenseful story of religious upheaval and political intrigue that likely resulted in the murder of the teenage king Tutankhamen. . . . Breathing life into old bones and artifacts, Brier examines all available evidence to arrive at ‘the most reasonable explanation for a tragic event,’ an explanation that, he says, is testable through the use of current technology on the mummified remains of the ancient king.”—Booklist (starred review) “Brier's 3,000-year-old mystery steadily draws the reader into the curious and exotic world of Egyptology. . . . By the time you finish his intrigue-filled reconstruction of Tutankhamen’s world—which includes such elements as teenage love, religious heresy, the Orwellian rewriting of history and the desperate pleas of a terrified queen—you risk coming to care a good deal about the young Pharaoh’s fate. . . . We can be grateful to Dr. Brier for showing that even a mystery dating to the fourteenth century B.C. is subject to engrossing examination.”—The New York Times INCLUDES 16 PAGES OF PHOTOS
