4.0 out of 5 stars Fascinating, 26 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Discovery of the Tomb of Tutankhamen (Egypt) (Kindle Edition)
Spoiled a little due to the - for me - over long forward and preface . However Carter's enthusiasm really comes across. His detailed explanation of artefact recording and preservation reveals how much work and effort went into handling each item. Today we would have laptops , phones ,computers laser scanning and other tools . Then it was hand drawn sketches painstakingly drawn maps , floor plans and objects photographed for scale and position , the pictures themselves being developed in another room in the tomb now serving as a darkroom! This tomb along with many others suffered at the hands of grave robbers , the broken door seals evidence of the damage. The inner burial chamber was however intact and you can almost anticipate the the tension as the first light in over several thousand years fills this tomb.
