No archaeologist in history had ever seen an intact burial of an Egyptian pharaoh. Now Howard Carter and his team were about to open the innermost coffin of Tutankhamun. Volume II of this historical and exciting series covers the dismantling of the enormous golden shrines around Tutankhamun's sarcophagus, the opening of the sarcophagus, the mystery of the immense weight of the king's coffins, and the magical day when they became the first people to gaze on the boy king's face after more than 3,000 years.
