Description of this Book

Mummies, whether they're preserved by people or nature, are a fascinating way to examine different cultures around the world. While most people know about mummies from ancient Egypt, the first mummies were made more than 7,000 years ago in South America. Anthropologists can only guess why, most likely because of a belief in life after death. Readers will be awed as they discover how different cultures perfected their mummification process. Well-chosen photographs and illustrations will reveal the incredible preserving powers of peat. Gruesome discoveries and even modern mummies are all highlighted in this book, which includes 100 facts about magnificent mummies.
