What is the Process of Mummification?

The first, and most important step, in mummification in the manner of Ancient Egypt, is the removal of the organs, including the brain and the liver. Once the organs had been removed, the priests placed the body in nafta, a type of salt, which dried it out. After 70 days, the body was removed and rubbed down with aromatic oils, wrapped, and placed in a sarcophagus, which could be either in a pyramid or another type of burial site.
