The steps for mummifying a body are pretty simple, would you like to hear them?
SURE YES! I'M ACTUALLY REALLY EXCITED TO LEARN!!
Before we start, you must know hat the aim of mummifying is that the body stays for the longest time possible.
Ya i know that. They also want to make sure that it doesn't decay!
The ancient Egyptians wanted to dry out the body, so the hired people for that job. Therefore, they would send the body across the Nile river with a boat to get mummified.
How long did it take to be completely mummified? It took about 70 days to be completely done
The first thing that you want to do is take out all of the organs and place each organ in a canopic jar.
You don't want to take out the heart, because it is needed in the afterlife, therefore, you would leave it in the body.
The body had to be packed in natron (salt) fro 40 days so that the salt would dry out all the water from the body. In order for the shape to stay the same, they stuffed the body with scented rags. Then, they took 15 days to wrap it up with yards of fine white cloth.
Did you know hat they placed good luck charms in between the layers of cloth?!
Once the body was done with wrapping, it was left for it to dry
