The mummies of ancient Egypt were part of a belief system that permeated the lives of the living as well as the dead. That period in history is an endless source of fascination, and this superb book offers a new way to understand it: Four printed acetate-overlay pages provide a window into the past, beneath the mummy's wrapping and right into the magnificent pyramids and tombs in which they were placed. With 120 full-color illustrations, this is an illuminating look at the great tomb of Tutankhamun, the pyramid of Cheops, and the rituals, arts, gods, and rulers of the time.
