From FoxNews.Com:

Mention the word mummy, and you probably think of the shiny case of King Tut or the linen-bandaged walking dead in a George A. Romero film.

But if you haven’t seen a real mummy (a.k.a. a body whose skeleton and skin have been preserved) since you were on a school trip, this is a good time to get reacquainted.

In recent decades, excavators have dug up remarkably well-preserved mortal remains at locations across the globe–in ItalyPeru, and the Philippines–that have changed a good deal of what we know about the history of preserving the dead. So come with us on a crash course of the world’s most “magnificent” corpses.
