In November 1922 Howard Carter discovered Tutankhamen's virtually intact tomb in the Valley of the Kings, sparking huge interest and changing the public perception of archaeology overnight. Now Carter's own account of the process of opening and investigating the tomb, first published in instalments between 1923 and 1933, is collected in a single volume, which contains details of the painstaking excavation and catalogues spectacular treasures including the priceless golden mask that covered the pharaoh's mummified face.
