By leading Egyptologist and author, Zahi Hawass, this sumptuous book of rare Egyptian antiquities from the tomb of Tutankhamun and other archaeological sites - many never published before - showcases the best collection of Egyptian art through the ages and recounts the adventures that led to their discovery. Hidden Treasures features rare antiquities that embody the mystery of the world's oldest and most refined civilisations and will feed a market hungry for the glories of ancient Egypt. The 100-plus artefacts were chosen from thousands stored at the century-old Egyptian Museum in Cairo and other storehouses all over the country. World-famous Egyptologist Zahi Hawass takes the reader on an adventure of discovery, telling the stories of how these stunning objects were unearthed by archaeologists over the last 150 years, then rediscovered in the storehouses where they had been packed away for decades. Some have not been seen since Howard Carter and others discovered them. Many have never been featured in a publication before, including 3,000-year-old objects from the tomb of boy king Tut.
