This is a complete guide to what the hieroglyph-inscribed objects found when Howard Carter opened Tutankhamun's tomb actually mean. The book is ordered by location, with sections on the Antechamber, the Burial Chamber, the Treasury and the Annex. Each object found in these locations is shown in a line-drawing which indicates where the hieroglyphs are written. Then the hieroglyphs are transcribed, translated, and commented upon.
