The Mummy: Chapters on Egyptian Funereal Archaeology

Front Cover
University Press, 1893 - 404 pages
Much contemporary horror fiction portrays mummies as zombie-like monsters, coming alive again after death. While these stories are made for entertainment, many contain actual facts about Ancient Egypt, mummies and mummification. This volume provides readers with detailed, accurate information about the mummification process and the beliefs behind the practice.
