When the virtually intact tomb of Tutankhamen was opened in 1922, it was the most exciting discovery ever made in Egypt and triggered international 'Tut-mania'; yet precious little has been revealed about Tutankhamen himself. In this study, the acclaimed Egyptologist Joyce Tyldesley unshrouds the enigmatic king. Her book is in two parts: the first on the life and death of the young king; the second on his life after death and the development of the 'post-discovery Tutankhamen'.
