Item description for The Royal Mummies: Immortality in Ancient Egypt by Zahi Hawass...

Since the major archaeological excavations of the ninteenth century, we have been fascinated by the mummies of ancient Egypt. Written in an authoritative yet accessible tone, this essential resource provides an information-packed overview of royal mummies. The text describes the ancient Egyptians' belief in the afterlife and how mummification ensured their bodies were preserved for eternity. Revealing the secrets of the embalming room, the meaning of the amulets found with mummies, and the ornate splendor of the mummies themselves, this volume explores all facets of a practice that lasted for more than 3,000 years, starting around 2,500 B.C. Spotlighting such renowned examples of well-preserved mummies as Tutankhamen, Seti I and Ramses the Great, 200 color photographs depict the ornate sarcophagi, hieroglyphics, and amulets that add to the mystique of the mummy. With a foreword by Zahi Hawass, widely recognized as the world's foremost Egyptologist, and presented in a handsome slipcase, this volume is required reading for students of archaeology and anyone intrigued by the history of ancient Egypt.
Zahi Hawass is the General Secretary of the Supreme Council of Antiquities and Director of the Excavation at the Giza Pyramids, Saqqara, and the Bahariya Oasis. He is the author of a number of volumes including Realm of the Pharaohs (White Star). With a specialization in both pathology and Egyptology and more than 20 years of successful excavations of Egyptian necropolises, Francis Janot is one of the leading authorities in archaeological research. Having conducted extensive research, he is a highly distinguished specialist on ancient Egyptian mortuary and embalming rituals. He has published several widely acclaimed books on the subject.
