The Complete Valley of the Kings by Carl Nicholas Reeves Book Summary:
Here is the definitive account of the Valley of the Kings, visited by millions of tourists and famous throughout the world as the burial place of the great New Kingdom pharaohs. Some eighty tombs were dug in the valley at the height of Egyptian power more than 3,000 years ago, their chambers stocked with incredible treasures and decorated with magnificent wall paintings. It was here, in 1922, that Howard Carter stumbled upon the virtually intact tomb of the boy-king, Tutankhamun. Recently the valley has made international headlines with the discovery of the burial chapels of Ramesses the Great's many sons; The Complete Valley of the Kings is the first book to publish an account of these remarkable findings. Reeves and Wilkinson, both acknowledged authorities on the valley, bring together the art, archaeology and history in one exciting account.
Toutankhamon by Marc Gabolde Book Summary:
Toutankhamon est sans conteste le plus connu des pharaons et cette réputation n’est pas usurpée. On lui doit le plus fabuleux trésor archéologique jamais découvert et son règne clôt la « période amarnienne » dominée par les figures emblématiques d’Akhenaton et de Nefertiti. Aussi bien du point de vue de l’histoire événementielle que de celui de l’histoire des idées ou l’histoire de l’art, la vie de Toutankhamon baigne dans une ambiance romanesque où l’on rencontre tour à tour Dieu, l’amour, la beauté, l’or et la mort. Grâce à des enquêtes minutieuses, il est possible aujourd’hui d’éclaircir ses origines en s’aidant des études ADN, de retrouver quelques fragments de sa vie de prince et de roi et d’avoir une vision plus précise de l’administration de l’Égypte et de la Nubie sous son règne. En suivant à la trace les étapes de la découverte de son tombeau, on peut encore enrichir son trésor de pièces insoupçonnées dispersées dans les collections et faire un sort définitif à la « malédiction » qui lui est associée. Entre la mystérieuse reine-pharaon qui régna avant lui et l’arrivée au pouvoir de ses successeurs Aÿ et Horemheb, les dix années qu’il passa sur le trône s’avèrent en fin de compte riches en productions architecturales, textuelles et artistiques, trop souvent éclipsées par les merveilles et les mystères de sa tombe.
Scanning the Pharaohs by Zahi A. Hawass,Sahar N.. Saleem,Sahar Saleem Book Summary:
The royal mummies in the Cairo Museum are an important source of information about the lives of the ancient Egyptians. The remains of these pharaohs and queens can inform us about their age at death and medical conditions from which they may have suffered, as well as the mummification process and objects placed within the wrappings. Using the latest technology, including Multi-Detector Computed Tomography and DNA analysis, co-authors Zahi Hawass and Sahar Saleem present the results of the examination of royal mummies of the Eighteenth to Twentieth Dynasties. New imaging techniques not only reveal a wealth of information about each mummy, but render amazingly lifelike and detailed images of the remains. In addition, utilizing 3D images, the anatomy of each face has been discerned for a more accurate interpretation of a mummy's facial features. This latest research has uncovered some surprising results about the genealogy of, and familial relationships between, these ancient individuals, as well as some unexpected medical finds. Historical information is provided to place the royal mummies in context, and the book with its many illustrations will appeal to Egyptologists, paleopathologists, and non-specialists alike, as the authors seek to uncover the secrets of these most fascinating members of the New Kingdom royal families.
The Woman Who Would Be King by Kara Cooney Book Summary:
An engrossing biography of the longest-reigning female pharaoh in Ancient Egypt and the story of her audacious rise to power. Hatshepsut—the daughter of a general who usurped Egypt's throne—was expected to bear the sons who would legitimize the reign of her father’s family. Her failure to produce a male heir, however, paved the way for her improbable rule as a cross-dressing king. At just over twenty, Hatshepsut out-maneuvered the mother of Thutmose III, the infant king, for a seat on the throne, and ascended to the rank of pharaoh. Shrewdly operating the levers of power to emerge as Egypt's second female pharaoh, Hatshepsut was a master strategist, cloaking her political power plays in the veil of piety and sexual reinvention. She successfully negotiated a path from the royal nursery to the very pinnacle of authority, and her reign saw one of Ancient Egypt’s most prolific building periods. Constructing a rich narrative history using the artifacts that remain, noted Egyptologist Kara Cooney offers a remarkable interpretation of how Hatshepsut rapidly but methodically consolidated power—and why she fell from public favor just as quickly. The Woman Who Would Be King traces the unconventional life of an almost-forgotten pharaoh and explores our complicated reactions to women in power.

The Sarcophagus in the Tomb of Tutankhamun by Marianne Eaton-Krauss Book Summary:
Almost 70 years after the lifting of the lid from the Sarcophagus, this book focuses on the monument. Following a detailed analysis of the sarcophagus's architecture and decoration, this book focuses on hitherto unrecognized evidence that the box was altered in antiquity, in all likelihood to adapt it to Tutankhamun from a previous owner. The list of possible candidates for the original ownership of the box is reviewed, with the balance of the evidence favouring Tutankhamun's immediate predecessor, his putative brother, Smenkhare. The text, which includes translation of and a commentary on the inscriptions, is illustrated by Harry Burton's photographs taken during the clearing of the tomb. The author is a specialist in the history, art history and archaeology of the reign of Tutankhamun.
