The Royal Mummies: Immortality in Ancient Egypt

£29.99

Product description

The text describes the ancient Egyptians' belief in the Afterlife and how mummification ensured that their bodies were preserved for eternal life. Revealing the secrets of the embalming room, the meaning of the amulets found with mummies, and the ornate splendour of the mummies themselves, this volume explores all facets of a practice that lasted for more than 3,000 years, starting around 2,500 BC. Spotlighting such renowned examples of well-preserved mummies as Tutankhamen, Seti I and Rameses the Great, 200 colour photographs depict the ornate sarcophagi, hieroglyphics, and amulets that add to the mystique of the mummy.

Hardback with dust jacket. Used, small tear on rear of dust jacket, otherwise very good condition.
