Arthur C. Aufderheide con The Scientific Study of Mummies Paperback

Críticas Review of the hardback: '… this book should be required reading for any serious researcher on the sometimes gory but always fascinating subject of mummies and what they can teach us about human beliefs and behaviour.' Sarah Wiseman, NatureReview of the hardback: '… a classic work …'. The LancetReview of the hardback: '… will become the standard reference text for bioarchaeological studies of mummified human remains and it is unlikely that the book will be superseded in this role for a very long time.' International Journal of OsteoarchaeologyReview of the hardback: '… an indispensable research tool for students of ancient populations and palaeophathology … a work of immense scholarship, superbly documents and exhaustively referenced.' The Times Higher Education SupplementReview of the hardback: 'Aufderheide's book, with its careful descriptions, beautiful illustrations, clear facts and timely reflections of a dedicated author, is in itself a statement on mummy studies and how they should be carried out for the benefit of all.' Annals of Human BiologyReview of the hardback: 'This work, a veritable tour de force of mummy studies, will establish itself as the classic volume on mummies. The work is, therefore, essential reading for palaeopathologists, osteologists, archaeologists and mummy specialists worldwide.' Journal of Biosocial SciencesReview of the hardback: '… a timely addition to the literature, providing a basic text for training programmes in this field and also a research reference source. … the range and depth of the author's scholarship and firsthand contributions to mummy science ensure that this thought-provoking book, with its wealth of facts, research citations and suggestions for future developments, will remain a classic in this field.' Rosalie David, University of Manchester'Considering that [this] book is over 600 pages long and packed full of high-quality black-and-white images, I feel it is good value. It is a veritable encyclopaedia of all things mummy and covers everything from the history, purposes and techniques of anthropogenic mummification to the use of pulverised mummified human tissues as a medical drug … This book will be engrossing not only to anyone with a passing interest in mummification and ancient history, but also to those curious about more recent events, as subjects covered include the embalming of Abraham Lincoln and the mummification of Eva Peron, Vladimir Lenin and the American Civil War horse, Comanche. It is highly recommended.' Bulletin of The Royal College of Pathologists Reseña del editor Mummies are the preserved remains of human or animal bodies. They may be preserved naturally or through human intervention, and their careful study can give us important insights into the past. This important 2003 reference work shows how mummification happens, explores mummies worldwide, and gives guidance into their research. Ver Descripción del producto
