Abstract:

This volume will occupy a place of honour in the future amongst the revelatory moments which history vouchsafes from time to time when it lifts for a moment the mysterious curtain which has hidden from our eyes a representative individual or a significant episode in man's experience. Could anything be more stirring to the imagination than the burial treasure of the romantic young king Tutankhamen who died prematurely after a short but sumptuous reign?
