Book Description

July 6 2000 Duckworth Egyptology
Egypt is unique among ancient civilizations because the physical remains of many of its ruling elite have survived intact down to the present day - thanks to mummification. Originally buried in splendor in the Valley of the Kings, these mummies were later hidden for safekeeping in a number of easily guarded 'caches' dotted around the vast Theban necropolis. The Royal Mummies, first published in 1912 and long out of print, remains the classic text on the Egyptian royal dead. Profusely illustrated with photographs and line drawings of remarkable quality, it includes extensive physical and archaeological descriptions of all the principal remains of some of Egypt's most famous kings---Ahmose, Tuthmosis III, Amenophis III, Sethos I and Ramesses II.
