The German edition of “Discovering Tutankhamun” out on 3 April 2015

Dr Zahi Hawass will be in Munich, Germany, on 3 April 2015 to present the German edition of his latest book Discovering Tutankhamun: From Howard Carter to DNA.

In this comprehensive and fully illustrated study, Dr Hawass reviews the current state of our knowledge about the life, death and burial of Tutankhamun in light of the latest investigations and newest technology. Dr Hawass places the King in the broader context of Egyptian history, unravelling the intricate and much debated relationship between various members of the royal family and the circumstances surrounding the turbulent Amarna period. The tomb and the most important finds are described and illustrated, and the modern X-rays and CT scans of the King’s mummy are presented in detail. (From the AUC Press catalog)

The German edition, published by Theiss (, has been translated by Prof Wilfried Seipel, famous Egyptologist and Director of the Kunsthistoriches Museum (Art History Museum) in Vienna, and accompanies the international success of the exhibition "Tutankhamun - His Tomb and His Treasures".
