Storyboard Text

  • The Egyptian Afterlife is known as the Land of Two Fields. 
  • It is the Egyptian equivalent to Heaven, where there is only happiness.
  • The Egyptians had a process that needed to be done before you would enter the Afterlife.
  • First, the body was washed with wine.
  • The brain was removed through the nose, and all organs except the heart were removed and placed in jars.
  • After 70 days the body was wrapped in linen and placed in a sarcophagus.
  • The soul then split into 2, one which watched over the family of the person, and one that would enter the Hall of Maat to have the person's heart weighed.
  • If the person's heart was lighter than a feather, then they were able to enter the Afterlife, where they would live in happiness for the rest of eternity.
