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.
