Editorial Reviews

King Tut was great, but the ancient Egyptians didn't have a monopoly on preserving bodies. In Nova's boxed set Ice Mummies, we see three very different stories: Return of the Iceman, which recounts the study of a 5,000-year-old man found in the Italian Alps; Frozen in Heaven, a look at the evidence for Inca human sacrifice, which is so well preserved in the Peruvian Andes; and Siberian Ice Maiden, a tale of the clash between scientists and natives for the rights to a 2,400-year-old woman's body. Each film is haunting in its own way, yet provides an engrossing look into the nature of archaeological study; finds of such antiquity are rare, but perfectly preserved bodies are truly few and far between. There's much to learn from these frozen ambassadors from distant times, but we must remember to honor them with the same respect we would show anyone else. --Rob Lightner
