More About Mummy Lairs by Michael Burgan
 
 
 
Overview

Over tens of thousands of years, the living have found different ways to take care of the dead. Some bodies are buried. Others are burned. Perhaps the creepiest method of all is turning the dead into mummies—preserving them so they almost look as if they were still alive. Are the tales of magic and curses that surround some mummies' lairs really true? Among the 11 stories in this book, readers will discover mummies in a 7,000-year-old burial ground in South America; naturally preserved bog bodies in Northern Europe; and the mummy of an American outlaw that was displayed at carnivals and haunted houses in the 1900s. Fascinating details about burial rituals, human sacrifice, and ancient cultures are sure to enthrall readers. Mummy Lairs is part of Bearport's Scary Places series.
