The Boy King_s Journey through the UnderworldTutankhamun_s royal voyage into paradise, as told by ancient Egyptian treasuresBuried 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.

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.

In 1907, more than a decade before the discovery of Tutankhamun’s tomb, archaeologists unearthed remains from the mummification and funeral of the pharaoh, who ruled ancient Egypt in the 14th century B.C. Now in the collection of The Metropolitan Museum of Art, these materials provide physical evidence of burial rites of the now-legendary king, who is making headlines once again after new scientific investigations to determine the cause of his early death. Tutankhamun's Funeral includes a classic text written in 1941 by Herbert E. Winlock, one of the early 20th century’s leading Egyptologists, featuring in-depth analysis of the objects and their significance. In addition, an introduction and appendix by Dorothea Arnold update the findings with recent scholarship. The book is illustrated throughout with new color photography as well as many historical images and drawings.
