Death and Burial in Ancient Egypt by Salima Ikram
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


In Ancient Egypt, how you died was just as important as how you lived. After all, your eternal existence was at stake. The rituals, coffins, plans, treasures, temples, tombs and spells that surrounded death were pervasive, detailed and profound. This book covers all aspects of death in ancient Egypt. Ancient Egyptian religious beliefs about death, after life, and resurrection are explained, with a section on the Egyptian funeral. The mummification process, with all the variations that took place in Egypt's three thousand year history, is also explored in detail. This is a complete source-book on death and burial in ancient Egypt.
