Tutankhamun : the mystery of the boy king by Zahi A Hawass( Book )

5 editions published between 2005 and 2007 in English and held by 1,156 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Created by art historians under the guidance of Zahi Hawass -- director of Egypt's Supreme Council of Antiquities -- this book surveys 3,000 years of ancient Egyptian history by focusing on the lives and lifestyles of great pharaohs. The book's design echoes an exhibition, grouping objects representing family life, religious practices, funerary rituals, and gold. In each artifact -- a queen's eye makeup container, a likeness of a princess eating duck, a sarcophagus made for a prince's cat -- we glimpse the life of ancient Egyptian royalty: exotic and fascinating, yet so human. Gold gleams in a leopard-mask of gilded wood, a brilliant pendant bearing tiny goddesses, even the golden finger and toe covers of Tutankhamun himself, meant to protect his extremities in the afterlife. Features more than 120 treasures, a dozen landscape and archaeology photos, and text

Silent images : women in Pharaonic Egypt by Zahi A Hawass( Book )

24 editions published between 1995 and 2008 in English and held by 861 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Hawass contrasts the stereotype - inspired by such symbols of femininity as the queens Nefertiti and Nefertari - with a more realistic view of the common woman's everyday involvement in matters ranging from family life to dress and adornment to the workplace. While their chief role in society was as mothers, women were the legal equals of men and they could, and did, own property. Silent Images sheds new light on ancient Egypt's distinctive culture."--Jacket

This is the first book to reproduce these murals in full, and to explore the meanings of the esoteric and arcane Netherworld Books that decorated the royal tombs.

Besides being marvelous architectural constructions produced in very ancient history, the pyramids are the most apparent aspect of the unique religious and metaphysical beliefs of a civilization that developed on the banks of the Nile and evolved to an extraordinarily refined level. Yet the pyramids are still shrouded in mystery: despite all the research and studies carried out, we still do not know for certain how the pyramids were really built. However, the most recent excavations and research have thrown new light on the world that existed around the pyramids, on the lives of the workers that built them and the court dignitaries who were granted the privilege of a burial place near that of their king

Scanning the Pharaohs : CT Imaging of the New Kingdom Royal Mummies by Zahi A Hawass( Book )

11 editions published between 2014 and 2016 in English and held by 208 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The royal mummies in the Cairo Museum are an important source of information about the lives of the ancient Egyptians. The remains of these pharaohs and queens can inform us about their age at death and medical conditions from which they may have suffered, as well as the mummification process and objects placed within the wrappings. Using the latest technology, including Multi-Detector Computed Tomography and DNA analysis, co-authors Zahi Hawass and Sahar Saleem present the results of the examination of royal mummies of the Eighteenth to Twentieth Dynasties. New imaging techniques not only reveal a wealth of information about each mummy, but render amazingly lifelike and detailed images of the remains. In addition, utilizing 3D images, the anatomy of each face has been discerned for a more accurate interpretation of a mummy's facial features. This latest research has uncovered some surprising results about the genealogy of, and familial relationships between, these ancient individuals, as well as some unexpected medical finds. Historical information is provided to place the royal mummies in context, and the book with its many illustrations will appeal to Egyptologists, paleopathologists, and non-specialists alike, as the authors seek to uncover the secrets of these most fascinating members of the New Kingdom royal families."--Provided by publisher
