Synopsis

Ancient Egypt - A Very Peculiar History The Art of Embalming - Mummy, Myth and Magic by Jim Pipe

You can't take it with you - or can you? Discover the grisly process of mummification, from embalming and stuffing the corpse to preparing a home for eternity. This title explores the quirky side of a journey to the afterlife, looking at the myth and the science surrounding Egyptian burial practices. Full of fascinating lists, creepy stories and bizarre trivia, this title is sure to educate as well as entertain. Gold, guts and gods: what a way to go! Fact boxes, a full glossary, map of Ancient Egypt and index make the book both fun and informative, whilst being easy to use. The text is enlivened with black-and-white line drawings, and there is a full-colour frontispiece.
