Summary This volume will occupy a place of honour in the future amongst the revelatory moments which history vouchsafes from time to time when it lifts for a moment the mysterious curtain which has hidden from our eyes a representative individual or a significant episode in man's experience. Could anything be more stirring to the imagination than the burial treasure of the romantic young king Tutankhamen who died prematurely after a short but sumptuous reign?
Contents Return to the past -- The world of the dead and life west of Thebes -- The tomb -- The cradle of Tutankhaten -- Tutankhaten and the two capitals -- At Thebes, Nebkheprure-Tutankhamen, the king who "spent his life making images of the gods" -- The death of the king and preparations for immortality -- The dead god is reborn -- The thrice-married queen and the vengeance of Horemheb.
