    Price is right

    I bought it to learn more about the sanctifying (symbolic) aspect of mummification rather than the familiar assumption that the procedure is about preserving the cadaver. Symbolising readiness for an afterlife is more plausible than the idea of preserving. The section about the difficulty of interpreting painted faces as likenesses also confirmed my own views. The historical and cultural background to the passion for Egyptology was equally helpful and the whole book well written.
