How to Mummify a body- If you’re squeamish look away now!
1. Lay the body on a table, being careful with the body’s arms and legs.
2. Wash the body using a mix of palm oil and water, which mustn’t be contaminated.
3. In order to save the dead body’s looks, don’t cut the brain from the head! Instead push a poker up the dead pharaoh’s nose, it shouldn’t take too long to slice the brain.
4. Remove the organs and place them in canopic jars. Warning: don’t remove the heart otherwise your mummy won’t be able to reach the after-life.
