  • A luxurious volume with never-seen-before pictures, retracing the discovery of one of the most important masterpieces in the history of archaeology
Full Description

A gorgeous volume celebrating the eternal splendour of the boy pharaoh. On November 4th, 1922, after months of unsuccessful expeditions and excavations, a young Howard Carter was close to giving up his Egyptian experience in the Valley of the Kings when, unexpectedly, he and his team discovered one of the most important masterpieces in the history of archaeology. The intact royal burial palace and the golden mask of the boy king Tutankhamun are probably the most iconic symbols of Ancient Egypt. This luxurious volume will retrace, with never-seen-before pictures, the history of those exciting moments.
