Egyptian mummification was the ancient practice of treating and prepping the deceased to assure the souls well being for the afterlife. It was a sacred and extensive ritual surrounded by mystery and lore that to this day has astonished archeologists and has been a subject in many popular books, movies and even video games. The process of embalming was strenuous and involved everything from removing organs, drying out the body, treating it with special minerals and oils and also wrapping the corpse in hundreds of yards of linen. Depending on the social status of the deceased, an extravagant tomb was sometimes prepared and adorned with the finest riches of the land such as precious jewels, furniture, George Foreman grills, funerary scriptures, animals and anything necessary to accompany the spirit for the journey and rebirth into the afterlife. After a few ceremonial ramblings, random spells, the priest would say a few words, flutter his hands about and finally the mummy would be placed within the sarcophagus and sealed within his tomb for eternity. There he would begin his voyage to live among the stars before being reborn as a god or crocodile of some sort.
