A famous pharaoh by the name huksupdahtha
Died in the year 3,000 B.C in that very year I mummified his body because I believed that he would live on in the next world and so I persevered the body for the after life. It took me 70 days first I took a hook and took pieces of his brain out, then I cut him with stone in the side of the abdomen I removed most of the organs except the heart, and stuff the body with lining pads spice and jewels. Then plugged the nose with whacks, after I place natron over the body to dry it out. I finally rapped the body in many layers of lining bandages and place and a coffin then into a tomb.

A famous pharaoh just died his name was king Tut and he was 19 years old when he died and no one knows how he died. So now me and two other people will mummify him, this process take 70 days. The first step is to take a hooked tool and stick it up his nose and take out pieces of his brain little by little. Then we take a really sharp stone and cut in the lower left side of the abdomen and take out most the organs and put them into canopic jars the only organ we do not take out is the heart. Then I take this natron powder to dry the body of all its liquids such as blood and tissue. Then we put oils all over the body including the face so that it doesn’t fall apart later in his after life. Then we wrap his body in bandages. Finally I put all his values in his tomb such as his organs which are in the canopic jars, his gold and even treasure the reason why is because he might need if for the after life.

If I was a mummify Egyptians the five sense that I use is (sight, hearing, taste, touch and smell). The sight that I see a dead mummy get their organs out. The hearing is that the people talking a telling what to use to get the organs. The taste is nasty you taste the organs and smell in your nose a mouth. The touch feels nasty and soft and does feel right. The smell smells nasty it smell like out body a person who just got taken out the freezer. I will never touch a dead mummy in my life it doesn’t look right an I don’t get paid.


THE END!!!!!!!!!

If I imagined mummifying a mummy I imagine my-self throwing up. I would have to take the brain out piece by piece through the nostril using a hook shaped object. Then I have to use a stone to cut a hole through the left abdomen and take out the liver, intestine, stomach, lungs, but not the heart and put them in canopic jars. Then I had to fill up the body with spices, and oils, plug the nose with wax, and cover the body with natron until the tissue dries out. Then finally wrap the mummy in bandages and place it in its coffin. Then put in a tomb with many objects of daily use because the Egyptians believed they needed it in the afterlife.

Ancient Egypt

A day on the job, imagine that you mummify Egyptians, using your 5 senses (sight, hearing, taste, touch and smell), describe the process as you are mummifying a famous Pharaoh.

The Egyptians believed that bodies should be persevered for the after life so they made up a process called mummification and here are all the steps for mummifying pharaoh’s bodies. The first step to mummifying a famous pharaoh is hooking an instrument to remove the brain piece by piece through the nostril. The second step is to use a sharp stone to cut the left side of the pharaoh’s body open and remove the intestines, liver, organs and the lungs and putting it in canopic jars but not the heart. The third step is to fill the body with linen pads oils and spices. The fourth step is plunging the nose(s) with wax. The fifth step is placing the body with powder called natron a mineral mad from backing soda and salt until the tissues will dry out. The sixth step is wrapping the body carefully with bandages. The seventh step is putting the pharaohs body in a coffin. The last step is placing the pharaohs in a tomb with the daily objects and other things pharaoh's had.

Mummifying is not an easy job, but t is an honor to do it. First, I take the body and put it down on a stone like bed. The body is wrapped in bandages so it feels pretty hard. I use this tool to get the brain out through the nose. It really stinks. Then I cut the left side of his body and take out the organs. I wish I had enough skills to do this blind folded so I wouldn't have to see it. I put the organs in canopic jars. Then I see something wow what is that. Oh it is just the heart, you can stay in. I put some oils in the body. Next I put some natron on the body so the tissue can dry. Looking at this, I wouldn’t be able to eat for days. Last I put down some items that the will need for the after life next the esophogus.

Aliyah the brave,

I can see the body laying there, I feel the rubbery feeling on the skin, I can’t wait to mummify this body. I get my long sharp tool, I can see the point sparkle in the light. I was mummifying a very wealthy pharaoh. After I removed the brain, I used a very sharp looking stone to cut an incision through the bodies abdomen to remove some of the internal organs such as the, intestines, stomach, liver, and lungs but I did not move the heart. Then I filled the body with lemon pads, oils, spices, and resins. Then after I did all of that I plugged the nose nostrils with wax. Then I coated the body with a powder called natron until all of the tissue was dried out. Then I carefully covered the body with Lennon wrap and stored the body.

What I would smell while mummifying a mummy is old toilet paper. The things I would fell are toilet paper a hook and a knife. What I would hear are people saying, “Come on we need to hurry up and get this done” and the sound of organs and brains coming out. I would see people walking around with hooks, knifes and plates to put organs and brains on. What I would taste is regular food on my break but I wouldn’t taste toilet paper.

I think that the dead pharaoh would look smaller than when he was before, because they took out his organs and shrunk the tissues with natron. I think they left the heart so that they can weigh it with the feather of truth. I also think that he wouldn’t smell all that good either, seeing as they removed his lungs, intestine, stomach and liver and left it with him to rot, but then again they filled him with linen and spices.
Maybe the job of mummifying the pharaoh would sound loud, but only at the time when they where putting the wooden or stone coffin on top. It might feel gross to touch the pharaoh because he could be soft from the tissues deteriorating. And I don’t really think that you can taste anything.

If I had to mummify a mummy I will use my sight to see what I am doing. I will use my hearing by listening to my partner who is helping me mummify the mummy. I will use my taste for no reason cause I am not going to eat the mummy. I will touch the mummy for when I have to take out the intestine, stomach, liver, and the lungs. It will smell like baking soda, salt, lining pad, oil, and spices. That I put in the mummies body.

Aramis Pena said...

If I were on the job of mummifying a famous mummy (Pharaoh) for a day it would be kind of weird because it’s like your being extra nice and careful to a dead body. I would maybe see bugs around the body, which would be gross. I would probably hear people talking softly trying not to disturb the peace and also when the people are cutting the body it would sound like “squish”. It might be kind of weird if you really are there on the job because basically if u smell something your tasting it because humans kind of taste the air just like snakes. If you would to touch or feel on the mummy it would be soft and gushy kind of like there is slime in the body. If you were to smell how it smells you would probably get sick or throw up because the scent that a dead body is not good for a humans to smell, but if I really was there doing that job it would be kind of cool.

jose franco said...

Will the pharaoh will smell like a dumpster and it with week old fish raw smelly meat smell like dodo that smells. He look like a mad with a real big cut on the side and he have to organs but he still had his heart. It might feel like a big of chewed gum with a nose, head, and toes. All I can here is the tool I’m using to cut out his organ and pick pieces of he brain. The thing is I still have to rap him up then put him in a coffin.

Chantel Williams said...

I walked in the room. It was so dark so I went back outside to see if they had a flashlight. They did. So I grab one and I went back in the room. I saw his body. So first I examined his body to see how it looked after all those years. He really smelled like he didn’t bathed over 5,000 years. Then I touched his legs to see if it still felt like bones. It did. I was amazed. I knocked on the linen to see if it was still hard. It was. It was really loud. It seems like the oil made it hard. Then that was it. That was the end of my journey.

If I had to touch a pharaoh’s body it will smell because it you touch a pharaoh’s body your hands will smell really bad. Then you have to hear the people saying hurry we have to do this Let’s go back to the touch it will feel gushy and gooey. It will also be long to bring the king into the building because you have to wrap the king up that will take long. The king’s name was king Murray he started at the age of 8 then grew up and started to have fields and farms he was a nice pharaoh to his workers. The mummy took 70 days I won’t to stick my hand’s in king’s Murray’s body you have to take out the lungs, The intestine, stomach, Liver but they did not move the stomach. They put lining in pads oil and so on they plug a nose with there where more than two coffins it would be shape like a rectangle or the shape of the king.

If my job were to mummify bodies it would be great because I would know how all the organs are and how the body is displayed. And the good thing about it is I would see the real body and organs without looking threw it threw a book. And it will smell bad just like athlete feet and that is a bad smell. And if I was to smell that for a long time I would get that taste in my mouth and that leads to a bad thing because if that smell would of went in to my mouth. I think that it will taste just like old eggs and fish. Also if that was my job to mummify a mummy after the mummy been there sitting for a long time days and then when I cut it and the sound would sound just gushy and it would sound a little cracking like. And if I ever touch it I think that I would fall out because that is just like felling a dead body at a funeral So now I rather not have that job after all those things that would go wrong.

Jariel said...

The first time I entered the Pyramid I fell over a skeleton. I was scared but I knew I had to get my job done! The first thing I did was turn on my flashlight search for the body. As soon as I found the body I smelt the body since it was in a coffin for 70 days and check if it still has the NATRON smell inside the body. The reason I would smell the body is because if it was in a Coffin it would probably be sweaty or the skin would be dirty and moist of musty smell. After I was done smelling the Pharaoh. I would SEE how it looks to be dead and in a Coffin for 70 days and check how the body formed or if it stayed the same way I would check around the coffin to see if there is any evidence left! The pharaoh I studied was “Hatshepsuts” since she was the first female famous pharaoh. The next sense I would use to help me with this Discovery is I would HEAR clips of how people handled their business when their Pharaoh died, and how they will react as well. I would use my EYEsight to open up the body and see if some of the organs were there or if some were missing. Last but not forgotten I would TASTE the food “Hatshepsuts” last ate. Since it was next to the Coffin. When I tasted it I got a little bit dizzy. I thought to myself “this type of food” has some type of chemical that tried to kill “Hatshepsuts” So they threw her into a coffin and took out her organs and left her heart in and covered her in NATRON! When I finally discovered how she died, the only thing I needed to figure out was WHO killed her. But when I was on my way out, I seen a note with hieroglyphics but since I had a magnify glass I tried to read it and all it said was what the “FOOD” had in stored. But the next thing I will have to figure out is who tried to kill her? But since there was this door that said DO NOT ENTER, I entered any way it had many bodies, so I took pictures and I left it that way. But for a second I was in a trap, but then I seen this wall that you had to press a big brown button to get out. I pushed the button and ran to the helicopter and said “LETS GO OUT OF HERE”! I

A day mummifying a famous pharaoh is like eating spoiled meat that was out of their freezer for about a week. If you touch it, it will feel like you put your hand in a gooey puddle of mud and rubbed your hands together. When you smell the famous pharaoh after 70 days you can actually taste it. When you are hearing the organs getting pulled put of the Pharaoh and it is all squishy and the sound it make it sounds like you are Smashing potatoes with your bare hands. Seeing that Pharaoh is not a good sight because after 70 days it would look like the skin is all wrinkly out and the eyes are big and scary I know I would never ever want to see a pharaoh after 70 days would you?

When I entered that place it was too dark for me to see.
So I looked in my book bag and found a flashlight, when I turned on the flashlight it looked like a place that hadn’t been clean for like 2,000,000 years. The place was so quiet, every step I took was so loud that it seem like it was a bomb. I moved the flashlight everywhere. You have no idea how bad that smelled it was like a chicken was cooked and left it there and got rotten, it was like garbage that haven’t been taken out for years, or not changing your cats litter out it was something unexplainable, I couldn’t breath but I had to be a man and take it in. I walked in and saw this mummy it was rolled up in cloth or linen. there were jars with drawings on them all over the place. I was trying to unroll it, and I finally did it. its face was black and hard with no hair on its head the mummy I discovered was Tutankhamen’s, body his mouth was opened in a form of a smile. I took a camera out and took pictures of it. There where mice and rats around him. There was this door it seem like it was to get out I opened it and it was another body whose body was it you’ll know sooner or later. TO BE CONTINUED.

A day on the job mummifying a body is not what you want to see. What I saw was all of the internal organs except for the heart and a dead body. Next just to hear the squish, squashing of the organs being taken out and put in to 4 different jars.

Then just by smelling the smell of the mummy’s organs you can taste it and believe me my friend it DOESN’T!!! taste good. Touching the mummy’s organs doesn’t feel good it’s slimy and bloody!! that’s like touching someone’s bloody cut and feeling the blood slide downs the womb. The WORST part is to smell decaying organs. It’s like smelling old molded meat that’s been left on the counter for days and the moisture is building up in the plastic bag and when you open it all of the moisture and air comes out and wonders the air and that really STINKS!!!!

The mummy that I am mummifying is Ramsey 2nd. The thing that I see is that I’m looking at the organs and see that some of the people putting the lemon pads in side of the body. I also could see that Ramsey 2nd is very aged and filthy. The thing that I hear is the people and I are cutting the body open I could hear the saliva come out and when you take the organs out it would be squishy. What I would touch is taking out some of the organs from Ramsey 2nd so I could put it in the canopic jars and put the natron around Ramsey 2nd body. The things I would smell is that Ramsey 2nd body is really dreadful. It smells as bad has raw meat.

If I mummified Hatshepsut I would see her all shriveled and old like a raisin. She would not see her skin because it will be dried. I would see her organs dead and old. I would hear me using the stone to cut the left side of her body and removing the organs. I will also hear me pouring a powder that is called natron that is baking soda and salt. When I touch Hatshepsut organs it will feel gooey and sticky. I couldn’t wait to take it off my hands. Touching the wax and shoving it up her nose felt weird. It felt like touching clay. I tried not to smell anything but you can’t hold your breath forever. I smelled a couple of things I smelled the baking soda and the salt. I also smelled the dead body and it smelled like if an animal died. I said to myself I am not doing this any more.

Mummification was really important to them. When a person passed away, they would mummify their bodies. They believed that they had an after life. So they would take basically everything out of the body except the heart. They would take out the brain too.
They used a special too take out the brain. They took the brain out piece by piece. They would take the special tool and put it up the nostrils. Everything they took out they put it in a jar.
They used a sharp stone to take out the lungs and all the other stuff. They would cut a whole at the left side of the person’s hip. They would then have a ceremony and wrap the person’s body in a special paper. Then they would put it in the box.

fatah a2 said...

Life would have been difficult for me if I was an Egyptian. If I had to do the mummification process it would be hard. I learned that it takes 70 days to finish the burial. The first thing that I would do is spread oil around the dead body. I would do that because it makes it slippery and it’s easier. Next I would put a type of salt on the body. That salt that I would use is natron.
Then next I would take out the brain of the dead body. And also take out most of the organs and put them in a jar. After all the organs are out I would put tissue in the cut open part. Then I would wait for the tissue to dry up. Then after all that I will do two more things.
The fist thing I would is wrap the dead body in linen. Linen is a type of tissue. Then the next thing that I would do is find a coffin that is shaped like the dead body or a square one. I would place the dead body in the coffin and place it in the tomb. That is what I would do if I had to mummify a dead person

I am in a room with my partner. The dead person is laying on the table. I use my sight to see what am I doing. I am hearing my partner telling me what to do. I don’t taste nothing because I don’t use my mouth to do anything. I touch all the organs. It will smell like baking soda, salt, lining pad, oil, and spices.

I started to walk to the body. I had my torch so I can be able to see what I’m doing. First thing I did was…removed the brain. Then, I remove some parts of the insides. But I left the heart. It smelled so bad. So I add some linen pads and different kinds of oils. I put some plugs in the nostrils and put the body in some powder but its kind of baking soda. This process will take up to 70 days. Sometimes the person who is doing this process would put the body in two coffins. I just put it in one. Because I think it would be easier for them and when they arrive the afterlife, they wouldn’t have to worry about anything. But before my journey is over, I just wish that he didn’t smell so bad. But this is the end.[;

In order to mummify a pharaoh several steps had to be taken in order for the mummification to be done perfectly. The dead were mummified because the Egyptians believed that when their pharaohs died they would need their body in the after life. First they used a sharp stone cut an incision in the body from there they removed the in internal organs such as the lungs, stomach and the liver. They left the heart. Next they stuffed the body with linen and resins. After that you plug the nose with wax. After you cover the body in nattron which contains baking soda and salt. Finally the embalmer wraps the body in bandages. These are the steps the Egyptians took to make sure that the mummifying of a pharaoh was done perfectly

A day on the job, imagine that you mummify Egyptians, using your 5 senses (sight, hearing, taste, touch and smell), describe the process as you are mummifying a famous Pharaoh.




If I were to mummify Egyptians using my five senses I would use all of them. I would first use it to see how big the body is. Then I would use touch so I no were to cut the body at and so I no what to remove. Also I would use smell so I no what spice to put on the body. Next I would use smell so I no what food to put in the tum. Also I would use touch again so I no what jewels in the tum to. Also I would use touch to no how I rap the Egyptians in gaus and but natron on there buddy. Then at end I would use sight again so I know whom I did.

The Egyptians believed in an afterlife so they preserved the bodies . They first placed the bodies on a platform for 70 days . Then they removed the brain little by little through the nose . Then they removed all the organs through the stomach and put them in jars.
After removing all the organs they cover up the nose with wax . Then they cover up the body with a special salt called natron but before that the rub oil on the body .
After the natron and the oil they use linen bandages to cover up the body . After that they but a cover over the person and the coffin . Then they put the body in the pyramid tomb with all it’s belongings

In the video that I seen tells me about what they did to the people that died and what they would do with there in sides but they would keep the heart because they said that they would need it for there after life they would put there in sides in containers to save. They also put wax in their nose for some reason they would put things that they would in the coffin that they would need so they wont get board.

If I was mummifying Egyptians I would throw up I couldn’t stand taking out there lungs, brain, stomach, liver and all them stuff but they don’t take out the heart witch is good. But anyway it will be nasty I would be scared of even taking all those things out. I really wouldn’t do it cause its just weird and I think that people that do this need to get paid a lot of money but I would be afraid to touch there inside things I just wouldn’t be right for me to do it.
It will spell really badly. Just think about all the blood is like if you were touching someone else’s blood that discusting? Is sent it! Plus just think of the smell of the lungs and brain and all the blood on top of that EWWWWWW! And all the people telling you to Harry up! You’ll feel rush and your hands all dirty and all the blood almost every wear. Ontop of that we need to clean him or her and rap them in white tape. It’s just too much work,
And me really if I was in a moment like this ill be so scared and worried about what there going to make me do. I really wouldn’t do it if it was going to be my decision. :)

Well I am at Egypt and I am mummifying a body. It is starting to stink because that person is dead. Well I am taking out all of organs and stuff. I am also burring the body in a tomb. I am mummifying that person with its goods and belongs. To take out the organs I dig up with a stick through its nostrils to take out the human tissues. Then to burry it in its tomb we put natron salt in the coffin. When I touch his skin I feel the skin rough. They also burry then with there treasure and jewelry. They do that because they believe that the person will come back to life later on in life and become richer. They burry the bodies in the pyramids so that no thief will come go in there and take the coffin and open it and take all the goods and treasure and jewelry and leave the dead with nothing they had before they died.

#1: The video was about the Egyptians. It talks about how they preserve the dead peoples bodies. First they start off with removing the internal organs, and then they cover the body with special salt called natron. Natron is used for drying out the body until it can be preserved. Then after around 40 days they fill the body with good smelly spices and then they rub the skin with bandages. Then the body is placed inside a coffin for its final trip across the river.

The ancient believe that dead people will live again. And that their body will serve a person in the next world. One thing that they did was roll them up with some kind of paper. It took them 70 days to take their stuff and put it on the coffin. Something that they did was too take a stick and put it inside of their nose and take their brains out piece by piece. Also they remove the people organ, intesting their stomach but they did not remove the heart.

¬What happened was that the Egyptians believed that the dead lived on. Meaning that if the dead where to rise again then the would still have there treasures with them and the things that they like to do. They are also talking about there bodies being preserved. They also thing that it would serve a person in the next world. They also talk about methods in embalming. Or keeping the body from decaying

As they rap or mummifying someone involved many steps. It also took seventy day. The process became easy as the mummifying began. It gradually became more elaborate as mummifying continued. More wealthy or richer people can do a more expensive treatment.

What follows show how the bodies of the wealthy were mummified after 1750 B.C. When taking out the brain they take a large hook then scoop little pieces of the brain out. They do that by using the nostril. They used a stone to cut in to the left side of the adamant. They removed most of the internal organs and put them in to jars. But when they take out all of the organs they leave out the heart

A famous pharaoh just died and he was only 19 years old. Now me and this other people have to help the people that are dead get in to their coffins. When I mummify Egyptians t I think that it is a hard job because I would have to do a lot of work. Then the work that I have to do is to take out all the human’s body parts except the heart. Then I have to clog the Egyptians nostrils with wax so they can’t breath. I also think that it’s a hard job because most of the time I’m in the pyramids. So then I can barely see my family.

Then when I have to mummify an Egyptian I have to take a type of tool and I have take out the Egyptians brain piece bye piece so that it can come out much easier. Also I take it out from the nostril. After that we use a stone to cut on the left side of the Egyptian. Through the Egyptian we can take more of the body parts. Then I would have to touch the Egyptian in order to rap it up in a special type of powder. After that I have to rap the Egyptian up with a lining bandage.

Sometimes the Egyptians are called a mummy. Then they
have to be rapped up in order to go in the coffin. Then we have to go and place the mummy on a table so that they can be placed in their coffin. Also they have to place the mummy in their coffin. Then they put the coffin in the pyramid and they have it there forever.

Manuel Baez said...

They did was when they bring the person to a table then they have to measure 1750 b.c then they get the hook and then they put at their nose then they move it around until the brain bleeds and brake it by pieces .




They use a sharp stone to open the right side of their stomach they took organs from their bodies andplace them into 4 different jar and then they put pices food on a bag then they put on their stomach.



Afther they done putting the bag into their bodie.And then they put on their nose with wax.then they put a pail of natron to hole bodie when the paper was techus and the bamer was wrapping him with banbige and then they placed the man into two case one made of woods,and gold or stone,the mummywas placed into the toom and the dead need thing for the fueture.

If I had the job mummify Egyptians I would not like that because Iwould have to see the in sidings of some ones body. Then they would have to put the stomack, lungs, intestints, and liver but not the heart. Thy scrmbled the brain because they thought it was not important just to produce snot. Then while the Egyptians scarmbled the brain and took out the body parts it would smell so bad!!!

Then they would replace the body with natron and different spieces. Then they plug the nose with wax.
They covered the body with gaus so the could go live in the next world with the new God. Then After they covered him/her with gaus they put them into two or more coffins. They where made of wood or materils. Then they put things in the coffin so they would be prepared.

In the last paragraph the sight would be horrible to see because you would see guts and other in sideing. The hearing would be ok because you would not really be able to hear anything. The taste would taste discussing!! When you touch something it would probley be all old and rinckle. THE SMELL WOULD BE SO VERY BAD!!!!!!

In the mummification video it talked about the process of mummification. In the beginning it said that the Egyptians believed that everyone lived in the after life. Life back then was basically like life today. In those times wealthy people could afford better mummifications than poor people. Even though everyone got the same treatment.
If I were a person who turned people, pharaohs, and queens into mummies I would start to have second thoughts. I would be thinking how did I get stuck with this job. Or if I was having second thoughts and I once wanted the job I would say what was I thinking. I personally think that mummifying people is a nasty job. I say that because I would not want to touch people inside or scramble their brain to take those organs out.
That is so vial and disgusting to me. I will not want to mess with a body after it finished living. Even if it’s what the Egyptians believe in. I am a person who likes to do interesting stuff but that just going a little to far for me. Well that’s it thanks for reading.

If I had to mummify an Egyptian I think it would smell because when you are mummifying some thing you have to take out there organs but the only thing they don’t take out is the heart. If I had a job of mummifying things or people I would not like to touch any thing because I would faint because I don’t think I would like touching the insides of a person.

If I had a job of mummifying a person I wouldn’t even think of tasting the organs of a person. I wouldn’t because to me eating the organs of a person is like eating your self from the insides. If I had a job of mummifying I not care of hearing when you take out the organs because that is not nasty because if you don’t like to touch the organs its not like if you are touching any thing or if you don’t like to see any thing its not like If your seeing any thing your just hearing things.

If I had a job for mummifying I would probably see the organs I would also see Egyptians stuffing the dead body I would also see people raping the dead bodies and putting them in coffins.

During the ancient Egypt years when someone died they mummified there body. When they mummified the body they used a process. The process took a lot of time. It took 70 days. The steps they took were very smart. First they stuck a tool down the nose and took the brain out. Then they used a tool to cut the side of the belly to take out the organs, the intestines, the stomach, the lugs and the liver.


After they used the process they stuffed the body with oils, species, lining pads and reasins. After that they plugged the nose with wax. Then they placed the body in a powder known as natron a mineral than contains baken soda and salt until the tissues were dried out. Then finally they rapped the body carefully with many layers of lining bandages and placed it in a coffin. The coffins were made of wood or stone.



They did this to the bodies because they believed that the dead lived on in the in the next world. And that for this reason the bodies should be preserved forever. They also said that the process for mummifying was simple when it began but became regaget.

If I were to mummify someone’s body I believe that he would live on in the next
world and so I persevered the body for the after life. Also I would remove most of the
organs except the heart but I would make sure that I cut him in the abdomen on the
left side. I would also finally rap him in the coffin then into a tomb. But before that I would have plugged the nose with whacks, after I place natron over the body I would finally rapped the the body in many layers of lining bandages then place him into a
coffin and into a tomb.That's what I would do because those are the steps to mummify a person because without those steps you can even do
it really wrong.

A famous pharaoh very young thought just died his name was king Tutankanu.Mummification was most famous in 1750 B.C.He was 19 years old when he died.His name was king Tut for short.So me and two other trustful and holy people will mummify him.Since I believe that our wonderful pharaoh will go to the after life I will make sure that his body will look exactly the same when he comes back.I will embalm him correctly.To mummify this body it will take 7 steps.First we will use a hook instrument to take out his brain a few pieces at a time.Then we will use a sharp stone to cup open his abdomen.then we will remove all of his organs except for his heart.Then we will fill the abdomen with thing such as oils,spices and linen powder.then we will cover the organs in linen powder.Then we put all his organs into conopic jars with pictures of the gods on them. Then we will plug the nose to the top with wax.Then we will place the body in natron until the body tissue is all dried up.Than we will rap the body in many linen bandages. Then we will put him in two or more coffins either made out of wood or stone.It took us 70 days to finish his mummification.Then we left him his favorite things that we thought he would need in the after life and we left him a box of at least 75 mini servants to serve their majesty in the after life.

I would use the steps of mummifying someone that takes 70 days.First take the hook and take out the brain piece by piece. Second I would use a sharp rock to cut the stomach area and take out the antecedence, liver,lungs,and stomach.
I would also put i side the empty body Lenin pads, oil, and spices. I would then plug the nose with wax. Then I would cover the body in natron and wait until it dries then I would finally wrap the body in gauss.
I would place the body in a coffin and place it in a tomb. I would feel the tomb with daily things. The pharaoh might need them for the afterlife.

In the video they will put natron on the body and wait and then they will rip the person in bandages. They used canopic jars to put the stuff that is in the body in it but not the heart. In the video they will put food and other stuff in there cause they believe that they might need it in the afterlife. In the video the are telling you what they used to do when some one died. They tell you that people will put food for them in the afterlife.

They rip they person in bandages and before that they will put oil on then so that there skin will be soft. They will say some prayers for them person before putting them away. They will say so words about the person. They will put they person in a case and it can be in two or more. They will put stuff that they will need.

In the video they show how they take all the stuff out. They show how they take the brain out. They show how they rip the person up. They show how they bring stuff for them for the after life. They show how they put the person in the case.

A famous pharaoh who died was king Tut.His full name was Tutankanu When king Tut died he was only 19 years old. No one knows how he died. It's a mystery...
The processed demonstrated on the video about mummification was in 1750 B.C.The process took at least 70 day to finish.These people belived in an after life. They belived there was another beginning for you after you die.
The process was not simple. First,the embalmers took hooked tools to take the brain out of the skull through the nostrils, piece by piece. Second,the embalmers took a sharp stone to cut a slit on the left side. They took out all the enternal organs except for the heart.They put them in canopic Third,they filled the body with oils and spices. Fourth,they plugged the nose with wax. Fifth, they placed the body in Natron, untill the tissues dried out. Finally, the embalmers cover the corspe with bandages and put it in a coffin.
