The Totally Gross History of Ancient Egypt
Mummies--dead bodies elaborately wrapped up--might rank pretty high on the scale of all things disgusting. But readers should be ready for an eye-opening read on some of ancient Egypt's gross history, such as the dirty details of what really happens to bodies as they're prepared for mummification, in this book. This gleefully gut-churning volume offers up some very vile medicinal practices, culinary delicacies, political and battle practices, and more. Readers will come away from this memorable read with a fresh perspective on the lives and customs of this famous (and now famously gross) ancient civilization.
