(And it wasn't limited to people--crocodiles, falcons, bulls, and cats were all wrapped-up too!) Tour the richest tombs and find out about the curses that haunted those who disturbed them. Visit a modern-day lab and see the advanced technology that can determine almost everything about a mummy--even hair color and any diseases it had!
