From a prehistoric farmer, to a wealthy woman buried with her jewelry, to a grand priest of Amun, the day-to-day workings of Egyptian culture are revealed in the remains of seven British Museum mummies. Readers will discover what these people looked like, how they worked, what foods they ate, and why they prepared so eleborately for the afterlife, through nearly 100 color photographs that document how the life of the ordinary Egyptian was different--and not so different--from our lives today.
