This book is to commemorate the opening of the the Luxor Museum of Mummification in May 1997. It is the first museum in the world dedicated to this subject. The modern purpose built museum consists of only one room, but the visitor is guided around well-lit and beautifully displayed exhibits and story boards which describe the process of mummification from beginning to end, as well as the religious customs associated with burials, many of which are presented in full color photographs in this book.
