The ancient Egyptians believed that when someone died, their soul left their body. The soul would then return and be reunited with the body after it was buried. However, the soul needed to be able to find and recognize the body in order to live forever.
The mummification process took 70 days. Priests worked as embalmers (a thing where they take organs out).
The mummies were then buried in coffins in a burial chamber.
The Egyptians believed they felt that they believed in the afterlife, and that's why the mummies were mummified.
The mummified body would be easier for a soul to identify than a body by 3 spirits: the ka, ba, and the akh.
