The Egyptian Book of the Dead
Click the picture for a larger view
Like most peoples, the Ancient Egyptians had a strong belief in the after-life.
The following pages take you on a journey through the Book of the Dead, as written on the walls of the tombs of the Kings, Queens and Priests, of one of the oldest civilisations on earth.
This book was designed to aid the soul on the great journey to paradise.
The graphics that you are about to see are from a series of photographs taken in the 1920's, when many of the paintings were still intact, and modern tourists, (in their thousands), had not destroyed the very thing that they had gone to look at. These photos were published in 1924, only 2 years after the discovery of Tutankamen's tomb.
Be patient, the graphics are as large as practical to retain information.
There are a total of 36 pages.
