The Mummies in ancient Egypt
National Archeological Museum - Egyptian Museum of Florence
Follow Deb the hippo in this amazing journey to learn all the secrets of the mummification rituals.
The Egyptians believed that death did not determine the end of life, but merely a transition to another stage, which continued in the afterlife. The soul of the dead would separate from its body, but to do so and to continue to live, it had to be able to reincarnate itself. The only way to make sure this happened was to preserve the body, constantly fine tuning techniques and new methods for embalming.
The book features several in-depth analysis, captions and over 50 illustrations to guide children into the magical world of Egypt.
