Summary
Penned by a scholar who was personally involved in research into the enigmatic young pharaoh, this fully illustrated study reviews our knowledge about the life, death, and burial of Tutankhamun. Zahi Hawass places the king in the broader context of Egyptian history, unravelling the intricate and much debated relationship between various members of the royal family, and the circumstances surrounding the turbulent Amarna period
