Tutankhamun's tomb : the thrill of discovery by Harry Burton( Book )
4 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 782 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
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

The tomb of Tut.ankh. Amen discovered by the late Earl of Carnarvon and Howard Carter by Howard Carter( Book )
1 edition published in 2000 in English and held by 59 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The tomb of Tutankhamun (Tut.ankh.Amen), uncovered by the fifth Earl of Carnarvon and Howard Carter in November 1922, was the greatest archaeological find the world has ever seen. Though entered by thieves in antiquity, the burial of the king lay intact with its nest of coffins and funerary shrines, surrounded by a mass of burial equipment arranged in three peripheral chambers." "The Tomb of Tut.ankh.Amen: The Annexe and Treasury, originally published in 1933, is the third volume of Carter's magnificent trilogy describing the excavation of two of these store chambers, within which were gathered many of the boy-king's most splendid funerary treasures."--BOOK JACKET
