Your lesson on mummification. Enjoy.

Prologue: the person who brought us most of what we know of Egyptian mummification processes is the Greek historian Herodotus. He describes the processes in this way:#1- the very first step is to lay the deceased in the the sand under the hot sun as this made sure no decomposition could be done. The next step is to extract the brain through the nasal cavity but cutting through the nasal wall and extracting the brain using a heated hook and a hammer and chisel. All the other organs are taken out as well, except the heart, as this was seen as the organ that contains the spirit, and emotions. Any soft material that rots with bacteria was preserved by injecting pine oil through the viscera, or the Anus.#2- the chest and abdomen cavities are filled with a nateon solution and linen rolls impregnated with perfumes and resins, which are substances that cannot be decomposed by bacteria.#3- drying the body by placing in dry matron salt to extract any water present, extracting fats and drying tissues completely.#4- coating the corpse with a liquid resin to block all skin pores, so that it insulates moisture and repels all microorganisms even if placed in water or left out.#5- in one of the advanced stages of the process, sand is placed between the skin and muscle tissues so that the skin appeared full and didnt sag.#6- using bees wax to preserve and close the nostrils, eyes, mouth and abdomen.#7- coloring the lips and cheeks with cosmetics.#8- wrapping the mummy in linen strips that can reach hundreds of meters long, painted with resins and colored with iron oxides (red ocher) and beeswax added as an adhesive material in the last 70 days of the mummification process.Source: @national_archaeology
