Horemkenesi was a Theban official who lived in the 21st Dynasty. This book follows a team of archaeologists as they unwrap and investigate his mummy. The archaeological evidence of his burial and the inscriptions describing his life and duties reveal much about the Egypt of his time. However, it is the process of unwrapping his mummy and the subsequent scientific investigation that provide more information through the analysis of the bandaging, his body and the embalming techniques. What did Horemkenesi look like? How healthy was he? Did he have good teeth? What was his blood group? What was the cause and date of his death? All these questions can be answered fully in this book which is illustrated with step-by-step photographs. "Unwrapping a Mummy" is part of a series exploring themes of Egyptian life and culture in a format accessible to students and general readers with particular emphasis on the evidence from archaelogy.
