The author, a world expert on Egyptian mummification, addresses the most frequently asked questions about Egyptian Mummies : how and why they were made, the religious beliefs which underpinned mummification, the preservation of animals, and how the mummies have been treated from ancient times until the present day.

He provides an up to date summary of the ancient evidence, and also considers modern attitudes to Egyptian Mummies, emphasising their role as a major source of knowledge and understanding about past societies. The text and illustrations draw heavily on the rich collection of mummies and funerary objects in the British Museum, and the findings of a wide range of recent scientific investigations of this collection.

The book will therefore reflect the important advances which have been made in the understanding of Egyptian Mummies over the last few years.
