Format: Paperback
Since first seeing the magnificent treasures of Tut.Ankh.Amen in the Cairo museum some years ago, and learning a little of Howard Carter, I have been trying to get hold of this work. At last it is now available and I have not been disappointed.
In this second volume Carter tells of the opening of the very heart of the tomb, the burial chamber and its never before seen contents including the mummy of the boy king himself.
Carters' preface hints at a man anxious, but not impatient, to get on with the next, perhaps most important, phase of this wonderful discovery, but irritated by the unwelcome intrusions and demands of the media and politicians. Having made his feelings known, Carter quickly puts these incidents behind so that he, and us, can concentrate on the incredible objects we are about to discover.
The account of the discovery, examination and removal of the contents of the chamber are detailed but not sterile, accessible but not patronising. The inclusion of some 88 plates at the rear of this book, although not colour, really bring to life not only the marvellous items, but also the scale of Carters task.
We cannot help but feel that dispite his vast experience and professionalism, Carter was as excited and awestruck by every tiny fragment of this discovery as any tourist. It was, however, this very professionalism that preserved these wonderful items and also brought us this unparalelled insight into the greatest archaelogical discovery of all time.

An absolutely enthralling volume of the discovery and subsequent detailing of the Burial Chamber of the King. Thrilling from start to finish and written in exceptional detail. Highly recommend this Volume, along with 1 and 3. Incredibly detailed style of writing, every minute item and its position in the tomb is written down in incredible detail. Marvellous.

HASH(0x91ae9600) out of 5 stars Tomb of Tut.Ankh.Amen: The Burial Chamber 2 July 2006
By Randall R. Brachmann - Published on
Format: Paperback
If your a serious fan of King Tut and Egyptology, this book is a must. Part II of Howard Carter's three part series, it gives execellent detail on the excavation of the tomb and everything that goes on around it. It will give you a greater appreciation of just what went into the original discovery and it's preservation. Learn more about what we now take for granted.
