Life Everlasting provides comprehensive coverage of 65 items from Scotland's exceptional but largely unknown national collection of ancient Egyptian coffins and other mummy-adornments. Among these items, which range in date from the 19th century BCE to the Late Roman period, are lifelike portraits, masks and a unique double-coffin for two young boys. The book begins with a short history of the collection, its curators and historians, and ends with a concordance, glossary and bibliography.
