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.
