Daily life of the Egyptians details the many discoveries made in the port city of Mendes and in the village of Deir El Medina. These discoveries provide a glimpse into the lives of the workers who toiled in the Valley of the Kings. Death and the journey to immortality examines the latest findings about Egyptian funerary and burial practices. Sacred hieroglyphs provide a map for the soul's journey through the afterlife, while doctors offer a detailed look at how priests prepared the body for its final journey.
