WeirdCrest Reading List: “Wrapped for Eternity”.

When Uncle Steve and I spend Halloween night sitting out on the porch waiting for trick-or-treaters,I take reading material with me. Last night’s nonfiction entry into the Hallowe’en spirit was Wrapped for Eternity: The Story of the Egyptian Mummy by Mildred Mastin Pace.

Wrapped for Eternity offers very detailed descriptions of how the Ancient Egyptians mummified the dead,and  how the first mummies were discovered by our present day culture. The book explains the religions connotations behind mummification and deals with the very real threat the Egyptian dead faced from tomb robbers. It is a fascinating resource for anyone interested in mummies and the Egyptian afterlife.
