Encyclopedia of Preserved People: Pickled, Frozen, and Mummified Corpses from Around the World
Natalie Jane Prior (au); Karen Carter (il)
Hardcover (no d.j.)
A fascinating look at those men, women, and children whose bodies have been preserved until the present day, with sections on Egyptian mummies, bog bodies, Einsteinís brain, and the Ice Man. Preserved people can tell us things that skeletons canít -- hairstyles and tattoos can tell us what people looked like, full stomachs can tell us what they ate, and autopsies can reveal what diseases they suffered. This book proves that history is not about dull dates but about people who laughed, cried, ate, and worked, just like us -- but who were also incredibly different. Illustrations.
