Some mummies died naturally, others were sacrificed to their gods. Nature has been preserving bodies longer -- and often more successfully -- than humans have. And throughout history, for certain cultures, preserving dead bodies has been an important part of their belief system. No matter how these mummies came to be, they all have fascinating tales to tell of life in another time and place. Their remains reveal much about how they lived -- and died.

Did You Know: When the mummy of King Ramses II flew from Cairo to Paris he traveled with a passport? His occupation was listed as 'King (deceased).' This entitled him to a guard of honor and a ceremonial salute at the airport. Under the city of Palermo, Italy, there lies a City of the Dead. If you lived in Palermo 100 years ago, you would have visited your dead relatives there. You'd have found their dried-out bodies laid in coffins, dressed in their funeral clothes. The preserved body of famous mountaineer George Leigh Mallory was discovered on Mount Everest in May, 1999. In 1924, Mallory and his climbing partner attempted to reach the top of the mountain. Did his mummified body hold evidence that they had made it?
