The Mummy - Chapters on Egyptian Funereal Archaeology

Wallis E. a. Budge

Originally written in the "Introduction to the Catalogue of the Egyptian Collection in the Fitzwilliam Museum, Cambridge" (1893), this volume looks at Egyptian Mummies and mummification and comes together with an overview of Ancient Egyptian history. This fascinating volume will appeal to those with an interest in Ancient Egypt and Egyptian mummies in particular. Contents include: "The Egyptian Race and Language", "The Land of Egypt", "Egyptian Chronology", "The History of Egypt, Dynasties I.-XXX", "Persian Rulers of Egypt", "Macedonian Rulers of Egypt", "The Ptolemies", "The Romans", "The Byzantines", "The Muhammadans", etc. Sir Ernest Alfred Thompson Wallis Budge (1857 - 1934) was an English Orientalist, Egyptologist, and philologist. He worked for the British Museum and published numerous works on the ancient 'Near East'. Many vintage books such as this are increasingly scarce and expensive. We are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with the original text and artwork.
