HOW TO LIVE LIKE...
AN EGYPTIAN MUMMY MAKER
How to Live Like series, each of which takes you on a journey into the past, in the company of a lively and engaging young narrator.
In An Egyptian Mummy, it's 1260BC and Neferu is embarking on the trip of a lifetime – not only down the Nile but right inside a temple to learn the secrets of embalming. The first part is the downright yucky job of cleaning out a dead body. But in time Neferu wins the honour of mummifying Pharaoh Ramesses. He assists at the entombment of Ramesses and his treasures in a secret burial chamber deep inside a pyramid.
