Inside the Tomb of Tutankhamun approaches its subject from two angles. Firstly it explores the world of Ancient Egypt and the politics surrounding the rule of the boy Pharaoh, Tutankhamun. Secondly, it looks at the pioneering work of Howard Carter and Lord Carnarvon in the 1920s, and the fascination as the world looked on in awe at their discoveries. The book not only provides an invaluable introduction to a particularly turbulent period of Egyptian history, but also seeks to answer questions about what happened to the Tomb in the years following Tutankhamun's Illegible]. The book features cutaway diagrams, picture-strips of the lives of Tutankhamun and Carter, illustrations of Ancient Egyptian life, maps and impressive photographs taken during the excavation and after wards.
