CAIRO – 25 January 2022: The Egyptian-Russian Foundation for Culture and Science has released the first book of the pioneering archaeologist Zahi Hawass in Russian, under the title "The Golden King, the World of Tutankhamun".
This book is a great encyclopedia that has been translated from Arabic into Russian with the aim of supporting the Egyptian-Russian cultural relations. The book presents topics about the discovery of King Tutankhamun's tomb on November 4, 1922.
On the occasion of the 100th anniversary of the discovery, this book was published, and a symposium on the book will be held on January 30, 2022, at the 53rd Cairo International Book Fair, in Plaza No. 1, Literary Library Hall, at 1:30 p.m.
The book deals with the story of the emergence of the Golden Age, a period in which the possessions of Egypt and its colonies were in complete safety and under its complete control, when gold filled the coffers and kings would marry the daughters of their old enemies rather than face them in battle.
The book includes a number of belongings from the tomb of Tutankhamun. These pieces were recorded by the English scientist, Howard Carter, who discovered them. King Tutankhamun assumed power during the era of the Eighteenth Dynasty and became king in the last years of the religious revolution brought about by King Akhenaten. He was just a child when he ascended the throne, and he died before he reached the prime of his youth. The artifacts found in his tomb can help us learn about his short life.
But as Howard Carter, the discoverer of the tomb, said, "The mystery of his life still eludes us, the shadows have moved, but the darkness has not yet gone."
In order to know about the life of the child king, it is necessary to go back centuries to the era of the great warrior kings who built that empire.
It is worth mentioning that the Egyptian-Russian Foundation for Culture and Science will participate in the 53rd Cairo International Book Fair with a large number of its publications in Hall 2 No. B24.
