Yearbook of mummy studies [vol. 2]
MetadataShow full item record
The papers in this second volume of the Yearbook of Mummy Studies reflect some of the diversity of research in the field. The subject areas covered include paleopathology, palynology, entomology, biochemistry, medical imaging, microscopy, archaeology, and data archiving. The natural and anthropogenic mummies studied come from Europe, South America, Asia and ancient Egypt. While some of the papers focus on the physical remains of human or animal mummies, others explore aspects of related artifacts or cultural practices. Some of the studies included in this volume do not stand alone, but are part of larger projects; they provide additional pieces to the puzzle that is the interpretation of mummies.
