How to Make a Mummy / Getty Museum


Getty Museum Production:

The ancient Egyptians developed a sophisticated method to preserve a dead 
body for the afterlife: mummification. First, the internal organs were removed 
and all moisture from the body was eliminated. Next, the body was wrapped 
with long strips of linen, and then covered with a large linen cloth.

Follow the steps of the mummification process in this short animation
