Review of The Treasures of Tutankhamun by I.E.S. Edwards

This book review is written by Eugene Kernes

Book can be found in:
Genre = History
Intriguing Connections = Get To Know The Peoples Of The World (Egypt)

Elaborate Description

A short history of Egypt surrounding the Tutankhamun is given and then various objects found in the Tutankhamun's tomb are presented with their respective explanations. The explanations to the objects, the cultural values surrounding the reason for the particular designs are the best parts of the book. The history given is rushed. The events provided are given a short description with poor transitions to other events.
