From a 5,000-year-old "Iceman" discovered in Europe to a tongue-tied Egyptian mummy named Natsef-Amun, mummies have a special way of "talking" to scientists--providing important clues about ancient civilizations. In this funny, fact-filled book, author James M. Deem takes readers on a mummy-discovery tour that spans centuries and continents. He explains exactly what mummies are, how they are created, where they have been found, how scientists investigate them, and what they tell us about the people who lived long ago.
