Recent studies using state-of-the-art technology have shed new light on the lives of ancient Egyptians. X-rays, CAT scans and DNA tests now enable us to peer beneath the linen wrappings of mummies to learn about the individuals inside.

In this highly readable and absorbing book we meet ancient people from every walk of life. For the first time we can confirm how these Egyptians lived and died.

Included is a special feature on the art of mummification, plus a wealth of information on daily life in the time of the Pharaohs - all illustrated with photographs, diagrams and stunning illustrations.
