Mummification was a huge part of Egyptian life, it was a special ritual that linked their beliefs of the gods and the afterlife.

They believed that a person needed their body to complete the challenges of duat and to move to the afterlife to take their place as a star.

By exploring this ritual in many ways we have understood both the ceremony of it as well as the science!

By mummifying sausages we learnt how the salt dried and preserved the body. By role playing it we learnt the steps and the language of mummification. By wrapping our dolls we learnt the process and procedures.
