The Egyptians were pretty cool when it comes to religion, tombs and the afterlife!
These Pyramids behind me are actually tombs. This is where they bury Pharaohs when they die. after that they give them their most valued possessions to take with them into the after life.
These Pharaohs were considered to be gods. This is why these tombs are so special. Once anyone dies, they have their organs and everything else except the skin, and skeleton removed. After that, they Mummify them! A process invented by the Egyptians. They take the organ less body and they remove all moisture with salt. Then the wrapping takes place, they need at least 100 yards of linen for each mummy.
