Preservation of the body was the chief end and aim of every Egyptian who wished to attain everlasting life. It is to the cult of the dead, the predominant feature of which was the preservation of the mummy, that we owe most of our knowledge of the Egyptians for a period of about 5,000 years. Egypt lives again through its dead and Budge gives the reader a complete picture of mummies and their history. Illustrated.
