Book Title: Discovering Tutankhamun: From Howard Carter to DNA

Author: Zahi Hawass

Book Description:

The discovery of King Tut tombs is priceless! In this book, the author reveals what we know and don't know about the life and times of the famous young pharaoh, from the discovery of his tomb in 1922 to the modern X-raying and CT-scanning of the king's mummy as well as the latest DNA examination of the mummies of King Tut and members of his family.

As a scientist, I have always been fascinated by the life and works of ancient civilization and have selected this textbook as a tribute to learn from our past especially I have been raised in Egypt "the oldest civilizations on earth."
