The Story of Tutankhamun

Publisher: Bloomsbury

Review

Although Tutankhamun is possibly the most famous ancient Egyptian who ever lived, we don’t know all that much about the details of his life.

This large-format hardback book is lavishly illustrated in the style of a graphic novel and contains just about everything anyone has discovered about the boy who became Pharaoh at the age of nine and died mysteriously less than ten years later.

From the puzzle of who might have been Tutankhamun’s mother to the gruesome processes of mummification and the curse of the mummy’s tomb, this book will amaze and shock you. And with a mix of maps and storyboards as well as quotes and letters from the explorers and archaeologists involved, your journey of discovery will be an exciting one.

Spanning several millennia, the story of Tutankhamun is brought right up to date with reports of the latest forensic discoveries and is sure to leave you wanting to find out more about the world he lived in.
