Description

The discovery of the tomb of Tutankhamun is a landmark in archaeological history and an event which yielded a treasure of unimaginable significance. On November 4, 1922, Howard Carter found the first sign of what proved to be Tutankhamun's tomb, but it was not until November 26 that a second sealed doorway was reached and the tomb breached after more than 3,000 years of undisturbed rest. Carter's diary, reprinted here, captures the drama of the moment of discovery and details the events which led up to the unearthing of the boy king, as well as the key events of the decade-long excavation project that followed. This new edition is introduced by distinguished Egyptologist John Romer, who reappraises Carter's achievement and places it within current attitudes towards the discovery and removal of archaeological finds.
