Samenvatting

A feast for the eyes as well as the mind. Ron Beckett and Jerry Conlogue, the unlikely hosts of the Discovery Channel & Channel 4's popular The Mummy Road Show, recount their adventures both in front of the camera and behind the scenes as they travel the world in a converted Charles Chips delivery van. Beckett And Conlogue pioneered the combined use of radiography and endoscopy to unlock the mysteries of the world's most baffling mummies - and in the process breathed new life into an old science. Their work has led to startling discoveries and unique insights on how people throughout human history have lived and died, and how cultures related to living and dying. Abundantly illustrated and refreshingly informal and candid, MUMMY DEAREST includes features such as Smile and Say Yeesh, which provides a new perspective on dental hygiene, Diamonds are a Ghoul's Best Friend, an inventory of cool stuff looters left behind, and Don't Try This at Home, a mummification how-to. MUMMY DEAREST moves easily from serious science to light hearted fun and back, and ultimately serves as an entertaining travelogue of a surprising journey of discoverv.
