Death and the afterlife in ancient Egypt by John H Taylor ( Book )
13 editions published between 1999 and 2001 in English and held by 656 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The text also reflects recent developments in the interpretation of Egyptian burial practices and incorporates the results of much new scientific research. Newly acquired information derives from a range of sophisticated applications, such as the use of noninvasive imaging techniques to look inside the wrappings of a mummy, and the chemical analysis of materials used in the embalming process. Death and the Afterlife in Ancient Egypt illuminates aspects of this complex, vibrant culture that still perplex us more than 3,000 years later."--Jacket
