Take a look inside Mummies Unwrapped

In August we’re publishing Mummies Unwrapped, illustrated by Tom Froese and published in collaboration with The British Museum – a fascinating and gruesome guide to ancient Egyptian mummies. And today we’re very excited to be sharing a preview of this new book!

What is a mummy? How exactly were they made? And is there really such a thing as a mummy’s curse?

Find out the answers to these questions and many more, in this gruesome guide to the mummification process. Filled with grisly detail, you’ll uncover secrets of the embalmers, tales of the tomb robbers and even what happened when pets were mummified!

Meet some famous mummies from around the world, from Tutankhamun to the ‘unlucky mummy’, and find out what happened when archaeologists discovered mummies thousands of years after they were buried.

With a glorious gold cover and quirky artwork, Mummies Unwrapped is a fantastic addition to any home bookshelf or school library.
