Publisher's Synopsis

Travel back in time to discover secrets of mummies and other human remains from around the world in this fascinating book, publishing 100 years after the discovery of King Tutankhamun's tomb.

From ancient Egyptian mummies and European bog bodies to the plaster citizens of Pompeii, painted people of the Steppe and Japanese self-mummifying monks, this book reveals what scientists and experts have uncovered about our ancestors' lives from the bodies they left behind. Find out what these people ate, wore, believed in, enjoyed doing and much, much more in this unique and stunningly illustrated book.

With an engaging text by Matt Ralphs, written in consultation with experts from the British Museum, and beautiful, respectful artwork by Gordy Wright, this is a book that will delight and inspire anyone aged 9+ with an interest in history, archaeology and anthropology.
