A mummy is a mystery--hidden in layers of ancient bandage, bedecked with priceless jewels. Why did the Egyptians of long ago prepare and wrap their dead to last forever? And how did they do it? Step by step, follow the process that took seventy days--from the embalmer's slab, where the corpse was made ready, down into the tomb, where the mummy was sealed away and sent to its new life in eternity.
