Death In Ancient Egypt
Life and death are never far apart in Egyptian culture and society. This book looks beyond funerary rites and mummification to explore the beliefs and customs of ordinary people. It also looks at how death occurred - through illness, accidents and violent death, as well as in the natural course.

Nicely written, brief review of attitudes towards death and funerary practices in ancient Egypt. Great for anyone interested in ancient Egypt. Like a lot of literature on Egypt it doesn't include much information on the Intermediate periods and the Late Period. Unfortunately some photographs are quite blurred.
