Synopsis

The Amazing History of Mummies and Tombs Uncover the Secrets of the Egyptian Pyramids and Other Ancient Burial Sites, Shown in Over 350 Exciting Pictures by Fiona MacDonald, Anne Millard

This book explores the traditions that have surrounded death through the ages, with particular emphasis on the famous mummies and tombs of Ancient Egypt. You will also find out about Anglo-Saxon hoards, the Aztecs' smiling god of the Underworld, the terracotta soldiers guarding the first Chinese emperor, and the curses that are said to have befallen archaeologists who opened up sacred tombs. Discover how scientists piece together the lives of peoples of the past, and how some bodies have been preserved purely by chance - by natural forces.

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
