This book provides an introduction to one of the greatest civilizations of all time – ancient Egypt. Beginning with a geographical overview that explains the development of Egyptian belief systems as well as its subsequent political development, it examines methodology, the history of the discipline of Egyptology, religion, social organization, urban and rural life, and death. It also includes a section on how people of all ranks lived. Lavishly illustrated, with many unusual photographs of rarely seen sites that are seldom illustrated, this volume is suitable for use in introductory-level courses on ancient Egypt. It offers a variety of student-friendly features, including a glossary, a bibliography, and a list of sources for those who wish to further their interest in ancient Egypt.

Death, burial, and the afterlife were as important to the ancient Egyptians as how they lived. This well-illustrated book explores all aspects of death in ancient Egypt, including beliefs of the afterlife, mummification, the protection of the body, tombs and their construction and decoration, funerary goods, and the funeral itself. It also addresses the relationship between the living and the dead, and the magico-religious interaction of these two in ancient Egyptian culture. Salima Ikram's own experience with experimental mummification and funerary archaeology lends the book many completely original and provocative insights. In addition, a full survey of current development in the field makes this a unique book that combines all aspects of death and burial in ancient Egypt into one volume.

Life can be a challenge when your mother gives your friends dead mice in your birthday goody bags and offers to mummify your class pet bunny. Amun Ra (yes, like the Egyptian god) shares the story of his endlessly embarrassing and unconventional life with his Mummy, famous Egyptologist, Amalis Marquis. He regales his readers with adventures of crossing continents, of narrow escapes with stolen artifacts, of death defying run-ins with scorpions, not to mention the humiliation in the face of his peers, with his mother's graphic stories of ancient rites and severed body parts. Along the way, he shares his knowledge about ancient Egypt, the modern Middle East, as well as Europe and North America. This book is appropriate for readers 9-12 but can be enjoyed by parents and children of more varied ages.

The royal mummies loom large in the consciousness of all Egyptologists: Alone amongst those who study the ancient world, we have the very physical remains of the kings whom we study. To read, for example, of the exploits of Thutmose III three millennia ago, and then to look upon the face of the man himself is a profoundly moving experience. This book is intended to present a basic summary of what is today known of the royal mummies housed in the Egyptian Museum, Cairo, and the lives of their owners. Two mummies, both still in the Valley of the Kings, are also included in this list. We also discuss briefly how the bodies reached their final resting place, and how mummification developed over the centuries.

Gifts for the Gods describes the post-excavation histories of animal mummies from ancient Egypt. Borne out of research currently taking place at the University of Manchester, it accompanies a UK travelling exhibition, the first of its kind. Both the exhibition and book seek to enlighten visitors and readers to the wealth of animal mummies in British museums and private collections. Importantly, they focus on the prevalent type of animal mummy to be found in Britain: the votive offering, which sets this book apart from others on this subject. In a series of chapters written by experts in their field, Gifts for the Gods details the place of animals, both in ancient Egypt and in museum collections, whilst incorporating the stories of those who discovered animal mummies, either in Egypt, at auctions or in museum storage. The range of scientific analyses applied to animal mummies at the University of Manchester and partner research institutions brings the book to a close with the understanding that this research represents only the beginning of a much larger task.
