Everybody will agree with the present writer, that is not an easy task to write a book about ancient Egyptian burial customs. To accomplish such a task you need a lot of information, experience, and a very serious training in Egyptology, and last but not least a clear mind to arrange the gathered material. Dr. Grajetzki possesses all these qualities enable him to write an outstanding book about the discussed topic. His book is far to be a simple "popular work", having an "ambitious" title which doesn't comply with the content of the book, as wrote an Egyptologist some years ago in her review. The "Burial Customs in Ancient Egypt: Life in Death for Rich and poor" was the first attempt to present in chronological order the main features of the burial customs during the whole history of the Ancient Egypt. The reader will find out almost everything about the subject, will be red with pleasure the text, and will understand easier the whole process of burial customs through the multitude of figures drawn in the volume. Pertinent notes, bibliography and a useful index complete Dr. Grajetzki's pioneer work about a subject some times ago considered without sense, or at least of minor interest.
