Format: Hardcover
This is an outstanding book. It is written in a very readable style and it covered all the questions that my family and friends (all keenly interested in ancient Egypt) wanted answered. Ikram and Dodson have a high reputation as professional Egyptologists (they are professors of Egyptology at the universities of Cairo and Bristol respectively)and they write with obvious knowledge and indeed love of their subject. Incidentally, Ikram has established a special room for animal mummies in the Egyptian museum in Cairo, the first of its kind in the world.

Format: Hardcover
This book delivers on what it promises--It is a readable and fascinating book on Egyptian funeral practices (mummies, sarcophagi, accoutrements, etc.), and how they changed over thousands of years. There is a useful appendix with a table summarizing how different aspects of funeral practice changed over the course of Egyptian civilization. The photography is excellent, though some of the illustrations of the mummies themselves are a bit spooky!

Format: Hardcover
Those who are interested in Ancient Egyptian mummification practices will find this book fascinating. Each aspect of the funerary practices is described in great depth, following its development through different periods of Egyptian history. It is a very detailed account, with lots of illustrations. Absolutely great analysis of the royal mummies; fascinating photos - which, I admit, might gross some people out, but that what makes them so great.

Format: Hardcover
This is a wonderful book for anyone interested in Ancient Egypt. Lots of pictures. The book should be of interest both to the general public with a vague curiosity about mummies and to egyptologists who want to learn more about the latest research in this area.

Format: Hardcover
This is a very interesting book with excellent illustrations and very informative. It is a hard book to put down. It is highly recommended even for someone who has a slight interest in the subject of mummification.
