The Mummy

Overview

The Mummy Fascination for the civilization of ancient Egypt endures millennia after the Pharaohs ceased to rule. Many of the landmarks of this distant culture have always been visible to all - the meandering Nile, the enigmatic Sphinx and the Pyramids, gigantic mausoleums which, along with the magnificent Valley of the Kings, were the final resting places of the once mighty pharaohs.

Overview

The Mummy Fascination for the civilization of ancient Egypt endures millennia after the Pharaohs ceased to rule. Many of the landmarks of this distant culture have always been visible to all - the meandering Nile, the enigmatic Sphinx and the Pyramids, gigantic mausoleums which, along with the magnificent Valley of the Kings, were the final resting places of the once mighty pharaohs. But hidden from the eye was a mass of human evidence of this ancient culture - its Dead. Central to the belief systems of all ancient Egyptians was the passage of the soul in the afterlife and so bodies were Mummified: eviscerated, preserved, wrapped in bandages and placed in beautifully painted coffins along with Amulets and charms for their final journey.

The Mummy explores every aspect of the mythological and cultural background of mummification - the religion and rituals, the myths of Osiris and Isis and the cult of the Pharaohs. Much of the treasure of these ancient tombs lay hidden until relatively recently, but once discovered, there was no stopping the archaeologists, Grave Robbers and fortune hunters on their quest for greater bounty. Then, in 1922, Mummy Mania swept the world with the discovery of the boy pharaoh Tutankhamen, who had been at test for centuries within the splendor of his azure and gold sarcophagus.

But along with the splendor that was discovered were other more Sinister Forces resurrected when this and other tombs were reopened? What is the truth behind the Mysterious Deaths of those who woke Tutankhamen from his ancient slumber? And what does the discovery of these ancient corpses mean for the scientific community? Author Joyce Tyldesley answers these questions and more as she explores both the reality and the myths behind the story of mummies.
