About the Author

Zahi Hawass, Secretary General of the Supreme Council of Antiquities as well as one of National Geographic's Explorers-in-Residence, is credited with such monumental discoveries as the tombs of the Giza pyramid builders and the Valley of the Golden Mummies, which inspired a best-selling book. He has been a consultant for film, television, and magazines, and he lectures throughout the world. In 2000, Hawass received the Distinguished Scholar award from the Association of Egyptian American Scholars.


Kenneth Garrett, a specialist in archaeology, paleontology, and ancient cultures, has photographed archaeological sites and subjects worldwide on assignment for National Geographic. His work has also been featured in many books, including two of Dr. Hawass's previous works.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Having seen the original King Tuthamen exhibit in L.A. about 27 years ago I was most interested in seeing if the current exhibit could surpass the glory of the first. This book should be required reading for anyone going to one of the four cities where these priceless Egyptian artifiacts are to be displayed. I have tickets for the Chicago showing. To have this book to remind and inspire me long after the exhibit goes back to Egypt is something I look forward to. For those who do not obsess over ancient Egypt and just are intrigued by the culture I again, highly recommend this book. If you can imagine all this magnificents is part of a lesser pharoahs tomb you will be challenged to know more. Superb photos!!!!!

This small booklet, prepared in connection with an exhibit, contains very good photographs and adequate text. it is small enough to fit into a child's hands, and since it can be yours almost for the cost of shipping, i highly recommend it for any young Egyptologists on your list. the information is basic and limited, but can inspire anyone to read further on the subject.

Jean sutton. Books like this one with beautiful detailed photography give us a glimpse of the art and craft of this culture. Which ended with Cleopatra when the Romans conquered Egypt. The old religions died, and the line of Pharos ended, but the legacy of the fine art they created and entombed can be seen again.
