Tombs:  Mummification: preserving of the body for the afterlife o Natron: naturally occurring “super salt” grabbing onto any moisture and soaking it in  Used to suck moisture out of human body in the process of mummification.  “Robs the body of its juices” o Canopic jars: vessels for vital organs  Brain thrown away after extracted from nose by an embalmer. o The brain was thought of as not useful in the afterlife; seen as fatty structure that protected the head.  Followed by the natron process  Stomach, intensities, liver, lungs all kept, wrapped in linens, and places in four canopic jars.  Four jars: depict the four children of Egyptian God, Horus o Heart is then placed back in the chest cavity along with incents for the smell. o Canopic jars placed in a box and then placed next to the body. o Body wrapped in linen and decorated with amulets of the sons of Horus and scarabs with inscriptions from the Book of the Dead. o Scarab: An Egyptian beetle  The Book of the Dead: funerary text for what the afterlife holds o In this text, the heart is seen as the organ of internal memory and thinking, not the brain o On a scale, the heart is measured against the feather of truth by Anubis  Anubis: Egyptian God with the head of a jackal  Foresees if life was lived well and true with righteousness.  Gives Egyptians reason to live a good life in the mortal world. o Ba: a human headed bird, represents the spirit o Ka: human form, represents the soul o Thoth, Isis headed God, records the results of the weighing o Ammit, “Devourer of the Dead”, eats Ka and Ba if one has lived a wronging life, meaning they will never reach the afterlife. o Incantations fill the Book of the Dead  Incantations: prayers to Anubis to work in the favor of the mortal at hand o Shabit figures: servants of the afterlife that serves as magical and soulless beings.  Carry out task of the deceased in the underworld.
