EES Tuesday Spotlight: The Story of Tutankhamun
Who was Tutankhamun, and what was his life really like? In this talk, Garry J. Shaw presents Tutankhamun as a person, rather than as a distant god-king or a symbol of ancient Egypt. Using details from the boy king’s treasures and possessions – from a lock of his grandmother’s hair to a reed cut with his own hands – Shaw reveals the life of this enigmatic young king, and looks too at Ankhesenamun, Tutankhamun’s wife. The talk is based on Shaw’s new book, The Story of Tutankhamun: An Intimate Life of the Boy Who Became King (Yale University Press, 2022).

Dr Garry J. Shaw is an author and journalist covering archaeology, history, and world heritage. He has a PhD in Egyptology and is the author of six books including The Pharaoh: Life at Court and on Campaign, The Egyptian Myths: A Guide to the Ancient Gods and Legends, and Egyptian Mythology.
