Summary "This book presents the story of mummification as a practice worldwide. Mummies have been found on every continent, some deliberately preserved as with the ancient Egyptians using a variety of complex techniques, others accidentally by dry baking heat, intense cold and ice, or by tanning in peat bogs. By examining these preserved humans, we can get profound insights into the lives, health, culture and deaths of individuals and populations long gone. It will be a ’must-have’ volume for anyone working in paleopathology and a fascinating read for all those interested in anthropology, archaeology, and the history of medicine."--Jacket.
