This new book draws on important ancient Egyptian monuments from the superb collection of the Brooklyn Museum to illustrate Egyptian strategies for defeating death and living forever. The book answers the questions at the core of the public's fascination with ancient Egypt, and explains the their beliefs about death and the afterlife, the process of mummification, the conduct of a funeral, and the different types of tombs. At the same time, curator Edward Bleiberg offers a fresh take on the subject by addressing the practical and economic considerations an ordinary ancient Egyptian faced when preparing for the next life.
