Taken from historical records, but told in lively, story-telling style, this book reveals the facts behind mummies all over the world! In Ancient Egypt, the men who made the mummies - the embalmers; Tutankhamun, the most famous mummy of all; in the Alps, the "Iceman", a prehistoric hunter discovered in a glacier in 1991; Siberia - the excavation of "the Princess"; "bog bodies" in Europe; and finally, a holy mummy - England's most famous saint, Cuthbert.



The book ends with a light-hearted "self-defence gide" - including how to spot a mummy!
