Synopsis

Mummy Mysteries The Secret World of Tutankhamun and the Pharaohs by Joyce A. Tyldesley

Enter the fascinating world of the ancient Egyptians and travel to the deep, dark tombs of the pharaohs to uncover mummies, spells and treasure. Unravel the secret ritual of mummification and the identity of the mysterious boy-king Tutankhamun. Explore the wonders of a spectacular civilization, from pyramid building to eerie animal-headed deities and cryptic hieroglyphic writing. This copiously illustrated book provides a first-rate introduction to life and, more particularly, death in ancient Egypt, while the special features bring the text vividly to life. Academically accurate, yet easy to read and understand, and beautiful to own, Mummies Mysteries tells a compelling story. SPECIAL ITEMS INCLUDE: - Pop-up pyramids - Hieroglyph decoder - Mummy mask
