Four impressive spreads are jam-packed with amazing facts about tombs, treasures, and the techniques used in mummification.

From the mysteries of the pyramids to the rites of a gods temple, from the embalming table to the depths of a pharaohs tomb, this book explores one of the most fascinating periods in history. Combined with authoritative text and illustrations that capture all the brilliance of Egypts astonishing riches, these large scenes bring an ancient civilization to vivid life for modern readers.
