The royal mummies in the Cairo Museum are an important source of information about the lives of the ancient Egyptians. The remains of these pharaohs and queens can inform us about their age at death and medical conditions from which they may have suffered, as well as the mummification process and objects placed within the wrappings. Using the latest technology, including Multi-Detector Computed Tomography and DNA analysis, the authors present the results of the examination of the royal mummies. New imaging techniques not only reveal a wealth of information about each mummy, but render amazingly lifelike and detailed images of the remains.

A lively new biography of Tutankhamun--published for the hundredth anniversary of his tomb's modern discovery The discovery of Tutankhamun's tomb in 1922 sparked imaginations across the globe. While Howard Carter emptied its treasures, Tut-mania gripped the world--and in many ways, never left. But who was the "boy king," and what was his life really like? Garry J. Shaw tells the full story of Tutankhamun's reign and his modern rediscovery. As pharaoh, Tutankhamun had to manage an empire, navigate influential courtiers, and suffered the pain of losing at least two children--all before his nineteenth birthday. Shaw explores the boy king's treasures and possessions, from a lock of his grandmother's hair to a reed cut with his own hands. He looks too at Ankhesenamun, Tutankhamun's wife, and the power queens held. This is a compelling new biography that weaves together intriguing details about ancient Egyptian culture, its beliefs, and its place in the wider world.

Following the discovery of Tutankhamun's tomb in 1922, the story of the boy who became Pharaoh, died young, and was buried in splendor at the height of Egyptian civilization captivated generations. But there exists a wide discrepancy between that saga and what scholars have learned in the past few decades about the king's reign and its major significance for the history of Egypt. Marianne Eaton-Krauss, a leading authority on the boy king and the Amarna Period, guides readers through the recent findings of international research and the relevant documentation from a wide variety of sources, to create an accessible and comprehensive biography. Tracing Tutankhamun's life from birth to burial, she analyzes his parentage, his childhood as Prince Tutankhaten, his accession and change of name to Tutankhamun, his role in the restoration of the traditional cults and his own building projects, his death and burial, and the attitudes of his immediate successors to his reign. Illustrated with color and black-and-white images, the book includes extensive endnotes and selected bibliography, which will make it essential reading for students and scholars as well as anyone interested in Tutankhamun.

نظرة جديدة كبيرة على كنوز وأسرار مقبرة توت عنخ آمون في الذكرى المئوية لاكتشافها. غالبًا ما يُعتقد أن قصة توت عنخ آمون تنتهي بنقل آلاف القطع والكنوز التي اكتشفها هوارد كارتر واللورد كارنرفون إلى المتحف المصري في القاهرة لعرضها، لكنَّ هناك ما هو أكثر بكثيرٍ في قصة الملك الذهبي. يكشف لنا كتاب "توت عنخ آمون والمقبرة التي غيَّرت العالم" مائة عامٍ من البحث في عالم توت عنخ آمون الذي بدأ منذ اكتشاف المقبرة، فنكتشف أن العديدَ من القطع التي عُثِر عليها في المقبرة صُنِعت من الحديد النيزكي الذي جاء من الفضاء الخارجي، كما ظهرت لنا أدلة جديدة أن توت عنخ آمون ربما كان محاربًا خاض عدة معارك حقيقية. ويأخذ المؤلف بوب براير قرَّاءه إلى ما وراء كواليس عمليات المسح الأخيرة بالأشعة المقطعية CAT لمومياء الملك لكشف أسراره، ويوضح الكتاب أيضًا التأثير الواسع النطاق لاكتشاف قبر توت عنخ آمون في مجالاتٍ خارج علم المصريات، حيث يتضمن دراسة لكيفية تأثير اكتشاف المقبرة على السياسة المصرية، وكيف ساهم في سقوط الاستعمار في مصر. أما خارج مصر، كيف بدأت المعارض الحديثة الضخمة الخاصة بعرض كنوز توت عنخ آمون بجميع أنحاء العالم في جني مبالغ باهظة نتيجة العدد المهول من الزيارات، كما قدَّم اكتشاف المقبرة نظرية جديدة لتوثيق كل قطعة أثرية تم اكتشافها في مكانها قبل نقلها، بالإضافة إلى زيادة حالة الولع بمصر القديمة فيما يعرف بـ Egyptomania مع اكتشاف المقبرة، وهو ما سُمِّي بـ Tutmania أو الولع بتوت عنخ آمون.
