The Secret of Egyptian Mummification Process

Egyptian Mummification, or treating the dead body this process is depending on removing all moisture from the body, leaving only a dried form that would not easily decay. At the beginning, the priests who in charge of the mummification process Inserts a hook through a hole near the nose and pull out part of the brain. Then they make a cut on the left side of the body near the tummy to remove all internal organs, and they have to wait until the internal organs dry. Finally, they put lungs, intestines, Stomach, and liver inside Canopic jars, It's an Alabaster Jars you can see most of them at the Egyptian Museum.

In Ancient Egypt, the Priests use Four Alabaster Jars For the dead king's organs, the first one had a human head it can carry and protect the liver. And it's called Imsety. The 2nd Jar had a falcon's head it can carry and protected the intestines and called Qebehsenuf While the 3rd Jar had the head of a baboon it's carried and protected the lungs, and It's called Happy. The last one had the head of a jackal and carried and protected the stomach, and it's called Duamatef. All Located at The Museum of Cairo and easy to see on the 2nd floor. Some King's Mummies were located in The Mammy Room at The Egyptian Museum, while the rest of them still at the Valley of the Kings and all in a good state of preservation.
