If a mummy could talk, what would it say? Of course, mummies can’t talk. But with modern scientific tools we can still discover what a mummy has to tell us. Read the stories of mummified Egyptian pharaohs and priestesses, baby elephants, pampered pets, and even a prehistoric bison. Uncover clues to centuries-old murder mysteries and human sacrifices, and even find out what a person or animal had for a last meal! Information from real scientists explains how we know what we know about each mummy.
So what do these mummies have to say? Lots, it turns out!
