Howard Carter's discovery - the intact royal burial of Tutankhamun - ranks amongst the greatest archaeological triumphs of all time. The boy king's golden funerary mask is perhaps the most celebrated single masterpiece from the ancient world, but his tomb, largely undisturbed when Carter cut through the priestly door-seals in 1922, was filled with a wealth of other less well-known objects, mostly designed for the king's enjoyment in the afterlife. This work contains a vast range of photographs of the treasures discovered in the tomb, and provides a detailed description and explanation of each of the masterpieces displayed.
