Tutankhamun : the mystery of the boy king by Zahi A Hawass( Book )

6 editions published between 2005 and 2007 in English and held by 1,140 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Created by art historians under the guidance of Zahi Hawass -- director of Egypt's Supreme Council of Antiquities -- this book surveys 3,000 years of ancient Egyptian history by focusing on the lives and lifestyles of great pharaohs. The book's design echoes an exhibition, grouping objects representing family life, religious practices, funerary rituals, and gold. In each artifact -- a queen's eye makeup container, a likeness of a princess eating duck, a sarcophagus made for a prince's cat -- we glimpse the life of ancient Egyptian royalty: exotic and fascinating, yet so human. Gold gleams in a leopard-mask of gilded wood, a brilliant pendant bearing tiny goddesses, even the golden finger and toe covers of Tutankhamun himself, meant to protect his extremities in the afterlife. Features more than 120 treasures, a dozen landscape and archaeology photos, and text

Silent images : women in Pharaonic Egypt by Zahi A Hawass( Book )

31 editions published between 1995 and 2008 in English and Undetermined and held by 862 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Hawass contrasts the stereotype - inspired by such symbols of femininity as the queens Nefertiti and Nefertari - with a more realistic view of the common woman's everyday involvement in matters ranging from family life to dress and adornment to the workplace. While their chief role in society was as mothers, women were the legal equals of men and they could, and did, own property. Silent Images sheds new light on ancient Egypt's distinctive culture."--Jacket

This is the first book to reproduce these murals in full, and to explore the meanings of the esoteric and arcane Netherworld Books that decorated the royal tombs. The images are accompanied by in-depth analyses of the most deeply held beliefs of the ancient kings and queens who lay there, beliefs that provided the impetus of the building, decoration and equipping of these magnificent tombs."--Jacket
Giza and the pyramids : the definitive history by Mark Lehner( Book )

13 editions published between 2016 and 2017 in English and held by 495 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The pyramids of Giza have stood for more than four thousand years, fascinating generations around the world. We think of the pyramids as mysteries, but the stones, hieroglyphs, landscape, and even layers of sand and debris around them hold stories. In Giza and the Pyramids: The Definitive History, two of the world's most eminent Egyptologists, Mark Lehner and Zahi Hawass, provide their unique insights based on more than four decades of excavating and studying the site. The celebrated Great Pyramid of Khufu, or Cheops, is the only one of the seven wonders of the ancient world still standing, but there is much more to Giza. Though we imagine the pyramids of Khufu, Khafre, and Menkaure and the Sphinx rising from the desert, isolated and enigmatic, they were once surrounded by temples, noble tombs, vast cemeteries, and even harbors and teeming towns. This unparalleled account describes that past life in vibrant detail, along with the history of exploration, the religious and social function of the pyramids, how the pyramids were built, and the story of Giza before and after the Old Kingdom. Hundreds of illustrations, including vivid photographs of the monuments, excavations, and objects, as well as plans, reconstructions, and images from remote-controlled cameras and laser scans, help bring these monuments to life. Through the ages, Giza and the pyramids have inspired extraordinary speculations and wild theories, but here, in this definitive account, is the in-depth story as told by the evidence on the ground and by the leading authorities on the site."--Publisher description

Scanning the Pharaohs : CT Imaging of the New Kingdom Royal Mummies by Zahi A Hawass( Book )

17 editions published between 2014 and 2018 in English and held by 438 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"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."--Provided by publisher
