Tutankhamen: and the Discovery of His Tomb by the Late Earl of Carnarvon and Mr. Howard Carter by Sir Grafton Elliot Smith (1871 - 1937).

This project is now complete! All audio files can be found on our catalog page: https://librivox.org/tutankhamen-and-the-discovery-of-his-tomb-by-the-late-earl-of-carnarvon-and-mr-howard-carter-by-sir-grafton-elliot-smith/
(From the Introduction) “Never before in the history of archaeological inquiry has any event excited such immediate and world-wide interest as Mr. Howard Carter's discovery of Tutankhamen's tomb in November 1922. It gives us a new revelation of the wealth and luxury of Egyptian civilization during its most magnificent period. In beauty and design and perfection of craftsmanship, Tutankhamen's funerary equipment is indeed a new revelation of the ancient Egyptians' artistic feeling and technical skill.”

“At the time of Tutankhamen the great peoples that had built up civilization were losing their dominant position. If Egyptian rule had not been weakened at this particular time...the Old Testament would not have been composed in the atmosphere of strife that gives it its distinctive tone and seems to us today to exalt the importance of warfare and the value of military courage.”

“The period which is so brilliantly illuminated by the discovery of Tutankhamen's tomb is thus perhaps the most critical period in the whole history of civilization. A new era was dawning and every scrap of information that sheds any light upon the circumstances of this fateful time is of tremendous interest to us in understanding the civilization under which we ourselves are living.” (Steven Seitel)

  • Type of proof-listening required (Note: please read the PL FAQ): standard



    IMPORTANT - soloist, please note: in order to limit the amount of languishing projects (and hence the amount of files on our hard-pressed server), we ask that you post an update at least once a month in your project thread, even if you haven't managed to record anything. If we don't hear from you for three months, your project may be opened up to a group project if a Book Coordinator is found. Files you have completed will be used in this project. If you haven't recorded anything yet, your project will be removed from the forum (contact any admin to see if it can be re-instated).
    Please don't download or listen to files belonging to projects in process (unless you are the BC or PL). Our servers are not set up to handle the greater volume of traffic. Please wait until the project has been completed. Thanks!

You're missing the bottom portion of the coding. :)

You need to copy it all the way to the bottom. The window scrolls.

No worries. When you get the code, go ahead and edit your very first post in this thread (not even the 2nd one), and replace all the info in there. :)

Looks good!

I won't be MC'ing this, since I'm overfull on MC projects right now as it is. But whoever does pick it up will probably shorten the file name. :) (I'd probably make it tutankhamen_01_smith_128kb).

Have fun with this! 8-)

Steven,

I can MC this for you.

The MW is up.

I made a few minor edits to the first post.

I am moving this to "Going Solo."
