"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."--BOOK 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.

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
The golden age of Tutankhamun : divine might and splendor in the New Kingdom by Zahi A Hawass( Book )
2 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 178 libraries worldwide
"Tutankhamun has fascinated the world ever since Howard Carter's spectacular discovery of his treasure-filled tomb in the Valley of the Kings in 1922. Egypt's leading Egyptologist, Zahi Hawass, here tells the story of this golden king, a short-lived pharaoh who came to the throne of Egypt as a child and died before the age of twenty, and of the royal dynasty that bred him. The reader meets Tutankhamun's grandparents, the Sun King Amenhotep III and his beautiful wife Tiye as well as the boy-king's 'heretic' father, Akhenaten, his stepmother Neferiti, and his half-sisters, the sun-kissed princesses of Amarna. Tutankhamun lived and died during one of the most fascinating periods in Egyptian history; this book provides a window into this extraordinary time of turmoil and treasure." "The Golden Age of Tutankhamun is illustrated, primarily with photographs of objects from the traveling exhibit. "Tutankhamun and the Golden Beyond: Treasures from the Valley of the Kings," which takes objects from Cairo's Egyptian Museum collections to Switzerland and Japan. Many of these photographs were taken by National Geographic photographer Kenneth Garrett, supplemented by archival photographs from the era of the tomb's discovery, a fascinating period of transition - in archaeology as much as politics - between the age of colonialism and the dawn of Egyptian nationalism."--BOOK JACKET

"Special features of this book include: Bilingual edition in English and Arabic; Brief, clear history of the ancient kingdom of Nubia and its relationship with Egypt; Description and explanation of the High Dam project - a modern national project on the scale of the pyramids themselves; Extensive details of the salvage operation of the temples at Abu Simbel; An informative biography of Ramesses II, including information regarding his massive building programs, military campaigns, and his family affairs; and Detailed descriptions of the artistic highlights in both the southern temple, dedicated to Ramesses himself, and the northern temple, dedicated to his great queen, Nefertari."--Jacket
