Summary

Summary

Some Egyptian mummies look peaceful and dignified, some seem to grimace in pain, others look mysterious or just plain creepy. But no matter how they look, they all open a window to the past, enabling us to understand the remarkable civilization that flourished along the Nile River thousands of years ago. Secrets of the Mummies brings readers to the gilded burial chambers of the Pharaohs, the embalmer's workshop, the excavation sites of the archaeologists, and finally to the high-tech labs of the experts who unlock the secrets of the ancient world.
