Omschrijving

A lively new biography of Tutankhamun—published for the hundredth anniversary of his tomb’s modern discovery

“Using the most up-to-date archaeological and art historical evidence, Shaw presents his preferred version of Tutankhamun’s life robustly and well, with a view to presenting Tutankhamun as a living, breathing human being rather than a demi-god. . . . The book requires little previous knowledge of ancient Egypt, if any, and is highly recommended as an introduction to Tutankhamun’s world.”—Nigel Fletcher-Jones, thepast.com

“An ideal introduction for those new to the field, and a comprehensive survey for those who have been fortunate to see many of the tomb treasures since they have been exhibited from 1962 onwards.”—Nicholas Cranfield, Church Times

"Overall, this is a lively and readable book, which should encourage a continuing fascination with the young pharaoh."—Hilary Forrest, Ancient Egypt Magazine

“Shaw’s compelling portrait of the young pharaoh in life and in death is based on the latest research and impeccable sources. Here we move far beyond Carter and Carnarvon into the life of the king himself. This brilliant achievement will appeal to anyone interested in archaeology and ancient Egypt. A lovely book!”—Brian Fagan, author of Lord and Pharaoh

“A fascinating, up-to-date and superbly well-informed account of Egypt’s most famous Pharaoh. Shaw has done a wonderful job.”—Robert Twigger, author of Red Nile

“This exceptional account not only brings the reign of Tutankhamun back to life, it also shows the ruler in a new light, not only as king of ancient Egypt, but as a human being.”—Christina Geisen, University of Cambridge

“Tutankhamun and his tomb have captured the hearts of all of us. His story contains the thrill of magic and curses. This book brings with it more magic with a new take on the time of the golden boy.”—Zahi Hawass, author of Tutankhamun and the Golden Age of the Pharaohs

“Shaw writes in an engaging manner, with the erudition of a scholar and the flair of a journalist.”—Ronald J. Leprohon, University of Toronto



Garry J. Shaw is an author and journalist covering archaeology, history, and world heritage. He is the author of six books, including The Pharaoh: Life at Court and on Campaign, The Egyptian Myths: A Guide to the Ancient Gods and Legends, and Egyptian Mythology.
