Horn Book Review

Illustrated with color photographs, this book discusses the roles of mummies, religion, medicine, and the arts in ancient Egypt. Though the writing is smooth, the small trim size exacerbates the crowded layout. A time line and lists of notable pharaohs, important deities, and related websites are included. Glos., ind.
