  • Lavishly illustrated throughout with vibrant images of Egyptian life and afterlife, Egyptian Mummies offers an illuminating guide to the ever-fascinating topic of Egyptian mummies.

    The author, a world authority on the subject, asks and answers all the most intriguing questions about Egyptian mummies; how and why they were made, who and what was preserved, which religious beliefs and sacred rituals lay behind the cult, and what fabulous treasures and tombs were created for the Egyptian afterlife.

    Drawing not only on the ancient evidence, but also on recent research and scientific findings, the book offers a stimulating overview of our current understanding, emphasising the role of mummies in expanding our knowledge of ancient cultures.
