The discovery of the resting place of the great Egyptian Pharaoh Tutankhamun [Tut.ankh.Amen] in November 1922 by Howard Carter and the fifth Earl of Carnarvon was the greatest archaeological find the world had ever seen. Despite its plundering by thieves in antiquity, the burial of the king lay intact with its nest of coffins and funerary shrines, surrounded by a mass of burial equipment arranged in three peripheral chambers. After the long search for the tomb and its initial discovery and excavation (volume 1), after the discovery of the king's resting place and body (volume 2), the third and final volume of Howard Carter's account sees him reach the treasury, full of the incredible riches that the Pharaoh had sort to take with him to the world beyond and which had seemed lost to time before Carter's historic discovery. Now available in the Bloomsbury Revelations series, the book includes over 150 photographs of the treasury and its contents.

The tomb of Tutankhamun (Tut.ankh.Amen), uncovered by the fifth Earl of Carnarvon and Howard Carter in November 1922, was one of the greatest archaeological finds the world has ever seen. Though entered by thieves in antiquity, the burial of the king lay intact within its nest of coffins and funerary shrines, surrounded by a mass of burial equipment arranged in three peripheral chambers. Originally published in 1933, this is the third volume of Carter's trilogy describing the excavation of two of these store chambers, within which were gathered many of the boy-king's most splended funerary treasures.

Your journey through the discovery of Tutankhamun cannot be complete without Volume III. In this third and final volume of Howard Carter's classic work on his historic discovery of the tomb of Tutankhamun, he gets down to the details of the objects contained in the Treasury and the Annexe. Neither of these chambers had escaped the attentions of the tomb-robbers who had entered the tomb in antiquity. As Carter describes, both rooms had objects that suffered at the hands of the robbers (and probably the officials charged with resealing the tomb). Nevertheless, with his usual style, Carter treats the objects and the science of the discovery with sensitivity and detail. One is a little tempted to wonder in places (such as the description of desert plants) whether he was trying to fill a contractual length for the book. But even here, Carter shows an extraordinary breadth of knowledge that makes the reading interesting. A specific example is Carter's very good detective work on determining the likely source of moisture that permeated the tomb infrequently during the more than 3,000 years during which it was sealed. Carter's understanding of the geology of the Valley of the Kings and his very intimate knowledge of the state of the tombs that intersect the same stony hillock as the tomb of Tutankhamun gave him particular advantage in this analysis. Thus he tells a very interesting tale about an otherwise dull subject, i.e. rainfall and ground seepage. Howard Carter's book is as relevant today as when it was first published. His long and remarkable career in Egypt added much to our understanding of Egyptian history and burial culture. For the first time, this entire series is available for Kindle. These rare and fascinating books are now affordable and you can take them with you anywhere. For the first time, this long out-of-print volume is available as an affordable, well-formatted book for e-readers and smartphones.

The excavations at these cemeteries provide a full range of X-Group objects, dated to the fourth through sixth centuries a.d. Of special interest is the military equipment, including many decorated quivers, parts of several unusual light composite bows, and a saddle date to the late fourth century. The most important discoveries were the complexes of chapels and animal sacrifice pits found beside royal tombs at Qustul. The arrangement of these Noubadian royal funerary complexes can be related to others in Sudan indicating the existence of a widespread and long-lasting funerary tradition.
