Description
What do mummies have in common with raisins? What did a well-dressed mummy wear? Did mummy makers ever make mistakes? These questions and many others are answered in this book by New York Times best-selling author Kenneth C. Davis as he unwraps the fascinating history of mummies from around the world. Are mummies just dead bodies wrapped up in cloth and found in Egypt? No way! Mummies can be dried out, frozen, wrapped up, hollowed out, or even chopped apart and then sewn back together! And mummies have been found in many places on earth. Many ancient cultures believed that preserving a dead body would help the body's owner in the afterlife. Some civilizations, like that of the ancient Egyptians, buried their mummies along with jewelry, board games, and even pets! Kenneth C. Davis's trademark question-and-answer format, complete with riddles, fun facts, and comic illustrations, is the perfect way to explore the fascinating history of mummies.
