Mr. T. G. H. James, Keeper of the Department of Egyptian Antiquities at the British Museum, London says of this book:

"William MacQuitty presents a series of photographs of unusual and striking character which evoke the mystery of Ancient Egypt, through to the death and burial of Tutankhamun.  His evocative photographs and text offer a sensitive presentation of the life and death of Tutankhamun, illuminated by illustrations which convey the drama surrounding the burial of the king and the excitement of the discovery of the tomb."

This brilliantly photographed and lucidly written book tells the amazing story of the discovery of the tomb of Tutankhamun by Howard Carter -- the richest find in the whole history of archaeology.  It describes the religion of Ancient Egypt and the sacred rites of embalming which play a major role in this most sumptuous burial.

The book shows the position occupied by Tutankhamun amongst the Pharaohs, explains the hieroglyphs that form his royal names, depicts the gods and goddesses of Ancient Egypt and the part they play in the life and death of the king, and provides diagrams of the tomb and its treasure chambers to enable the reader to follow the work of excavation as it proceeds.  In Tutankhamun, the Last Journey, William MacQuitty vividly reveals the beauty and mystery of the most astounding burial the world has ever known.
