This astonishing book documents the first-ever "virtual mummy," a three-dimensional rendering of the body that can be viewed interactively, repeatedly and from many different angles. In a sequence of dozens of startlingly clear images, readers are taken on a tour inside the "unwrapped" mummy to examine the skull, bones, internal organs, and the entombed objects: a protective amulet and an enigmatic bowl. In the process, we learn the answers to a wide range of questions about Nesperennub: How old was he? What did he look like? What diseases did he suffer from? How was he mummified? Mummy: The Inside Story provides a fascinating glimpse of the potential of modern technology to reshape our understanding of past societies.
