Description:

Designed exclusively for a broadband audience, this new site from Discovery.com and Second Story combines animation, text, audio commentary, video, and music to tell the stories of some famous mummies. In all, eleven different mummies are explored in four collections of animated and interactive narratives: Finding, Unraveling, Making, and Listening. Special features include interactive tours of unwrapping and making a mummy (the latter features a video of a modern mummy-making experiment) and a 3-D tour of a pharoah's tomb (this last option did not work so well on our visits). Simply put, this is just a really neat site that actually makes good on its promise of maximizing the storytelling potential of interactive media.
