A tomb robbers' trail revealed : Cold case KV62 Tutankhamun Paperback / softback
by Martin Hense
Paperback / softback
This year, with the centennial of Howard Carterâ€™s discovery of the tomb of Tutankhamun, Martin Hense is presenting his meticulous research on the robberies that took place in the tomb of this Egyptian pharaoh, 3300 years ago.
This book is the outcome of that research, presented like a true â€˜cold case crime investigationâ€™.
Even though the tomb robberies took place more than 3300 years ago, the evidence for the way the robbers entered the tomb and the items they removed, could still be discerned when Howard Carter opened the tomb in 1922.
Knowingly, but also unknowingly, Carter documented the last traces of evidence of these crimes.
Now, one hundred years later in 2022, the evidence for the different robberies is presented through new analysis of the documentation of Howard Carter and his excavation team.
