Mummification in Ancient Egypt
The Mummification process was focused on the religious aspect of Egypt. The concept of death is highly regarded in ancient Egypt and for the pharaohs, it was viewed as a way to join the gods. The ancient Egyptians used the mummification process to prepare their dead for the afterlife. The process involved the use of special tools and techniques for several days so all the moisture is removed from the body leaving only a dried corpse, and special priests would treat and wrap the body with a linen cloth and put within his or her grave with selected artifacts and a copy of a book of the dead which held many enchantments and protection spells. The mummies are hard to decay and can be viewed in the Egyptian museum Mummy Room at any time.
