    MUMMIFICATION

    MUMMIFICATION


    INTORODUCTION

    Mummification is the preservation of a body, either animal or human.

    During the prehistoric period (4650-3050 BCE) the Egyptian kings believe in immortality or the after life. They believe that after their death there is an another world where they will rule again. So, from this concept to gain immortality they need to preserve their body. This is how the mummification started.

    What is mummificition ?
    Over many centuries, the ancient Egyptians developed a method of preserving bodies so they would remain lifelike. The process included embalming the bodies and wrapping them in strips of linen. Today we call this process mummification.


     


    History

    The earliest ancient Egyptians buried their dead in small pits in the desert. The heat and dryness of the sand dehydrated the bodies quickly, creating lifelike and natural 'mummies'.
    Later, the ancient Egyptians began burying their dead in coffins to protect them from wild animals in the desert. However, they realized that bodies placed in coffins decayed when they were not exposed to the hot, dry sand of the desert.

    Process of mummification

    The process of mummification has two stages.
    The embalming of the body.
    The wrapping and burial of the body.
