Subject Review #2 Christy Wilcox Review of Module "Tutankhamun" Submitted by: Carol Schneebeck Reviewed by: Christy Wilcox http://www.civilisations.ca/civil/egypt/egtut01e.html I reviewed the module "Tutankhamun." The module was submitted by Carol Schneebeck from Sonoma State University in California. This module has information on King Tutankhamun. The information covers his death, his life and times, the curse of his mummy, the funeral, it has a tour of his tomb and treasures. Each subtitle on the homepage will go to the information when clicked on. Each one has the information that will be needed to understand more clearly. There are words that are highlighted and if you click on it it will give you a definition and maybe a picture to exlain. This module is helpful and full of information, but this information can be found in the other sites as well. Probably the same information that is in this one, but this is a good site to read and it is hard to be confused. Because the definitions are highlighted and the information is broken down into subtitles and the text is easy to read.

The site gives information surrounding the life of Tutankhamun. The main page is a very brief story of how his tomb was discovered. Also, there are links to other pages titled "Life and Times", "The Cause of His Death", "Tutankhamun's Funeral", "Tutankhamun's Tomb", "Tutankhamun's Treasures", and finally "The Mummy's Curse." The "Life and Times" page gives a small amount of information about when he was born, who a few of his relatives were, and the fact that his death is still a mystery. It does not really go into detail about his life or into the theories of how he died. It does, however, give links to other sites containing information about a few of the relatives, the meaning and more information about this name, along with theories of his death. One link on the page, http://www.scs.wsu.edu/~mrobin/pharaoh_death.html, leads to a very interesting site telling of Tut's predecessor and a theory of why he died. The next part of the site is titled "The Cause of His Death." It gives a bit of information about Tut's death and about deaths of others such as a possible successor to Tut and the death of Tut's wife. Not much else is discussed here. The next section is "Tutankhamun's Funeral." It gives details about Tut's coffin and the tomb. This page just gives the reader a brief description allowing for a partial idea of how Tut was prepared and how the tomb appeared. The following section is "Tutankhamun's Tomb." This section gives a description of the inside of the tomb. It has several pictures and even a virtual tour of the tomb. A passage from Howard Carter tells of the inside of the tomb as it was first viewed. This page doesn't contain much information as well,
but it does have many links to other pages which further explain particular terms. "Tutankhamun's Treasures" gives a very light description of what was found in the tomb. It has several pictures, though, and links to galleries of pictures. The final section, "TheMummy's Curse," of course tells about the rumored Mummy's Curse. It just gives a few incidents of deaths near the time the tomb was opened. The site gave a small amount of information about King Tutankhamun, nothing in great detail. It did, however, give a lot of links to other resources of information about King Tut. It was just a broad report that one could read to become somewhat familiar with who Tut was.

This site explains Tutankhamun without overexplaining and straight to the point information. No confusion and easy access to the information.
The colors and graphics were clear. The color was not overwhelming and content was easy to read.
