The Tomb of Tut-Ankh-Amen

Howard Carter

Book Overview: 

On 26 November 1922, after eight years of work in the Valley of the Kings, archeologist Howard Carter discovered the tomb of Tut-Ankh-Amen, a pharaoh of the 18th dynasty (around 1300 BCE). Different than all the tombs hitherto excavated, this was the first to be virtually undisturbed, and Carters words on a first look into the tomb "Yes, wonderful things!" have gone down in history.
Excavating the tomb in full took eight years, and most of the 5,398 items that were found in the tomb are now on display in the Egyptian Museum in Cairo, with the exception of the mummy of Tut-Ankh-Amen that remained in the tomb where it was laid to rest.
This first volume of Howard Carter's memoirs, written in late 1923, recounts the finding and opening of the tomb, the clearing of the antechamber, and the opening of the sealed door leading to the burial chamber.

What an amazing book! This was a delight from start to finish...step by step through the discovery and preservation of the tomb. Howard Carter has a very engaging "voice" and you feel that you are discussing it over coffee with a learned friend. The wealth of detail in the artifacts, the preservatio

I was very excited when I found this book in a used book store. I'm very surprised I had never run across it before. This was my first non-fiction book of 2014.

I've had this book for decades and finally opened it up to find the brochure I got when I attended the showing of Treasurers of Tutankhamen at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art in the spring of 1978. Although my sons were only five and seven years old, they remember the beauty of the gold mask th

I found this book, written by the man who excavated the tomb itself, extremely approachable and very exciting. Throughout reading it, I yearned to be there discovering the magnificence of the tomb. These were the days of archaeology!

Howard Carter nos cuenta como descubrió la tumba del faraón Tutankamón y describe a detalle todo el trabajo que requirió poner a salvo el impresionante tesoro que acompañaba al rey.

Un relato imprescindible para todos los que tenemos cierta fascinación por el antiguo Egipto. Un libro que ojalá hubie

One of my father's books that I thoroughly enjoyed. Beautifully illustrated throughout it's Carter's account of the finding of the tomb. If you have an interest in archeology and egyptology then this is a must.

Excellent books with great photos and details.

“Can you see anything?”
“Yes, wonderful things..”

Y maravilloso e interesante, para mi, ha sido leer el relato del descubrimiento de la tumba de Tutankhamón narrado en primera persona por Howard Carter. Que comienza con una descripción del Valle, de sus trabajos preliminares en Tebas cuando dio comie

I really enjoyed this book. I love all things Egyptian, and the discovery of King Tut's tomb is a special favourite. I like that the book is written by Howard Carter. Yes, he does go into details about the many items they found in the tomb, and those sections might be a bit long-winded for some, but

Howard Carter, famed archaeologist, discovered the Tomb of Tutankhamun (King Tut) in 1922 and wrote about the discovery expedition in this work. The discovery of King Tut's tomb was, and continues to be, sensationalized because the tomb was almost entirely intact. Only one set of grave robbers distu
