After 10 weeks lying in salt our fish in ready for the next stage of mummification.
Here is the process we went through…
First, we took our its brains using hook and made a slit in its left side where we removed its insides. These we stored within a canopic jar, making sure to seal the lid with wax.
Next, we cover the body of our fish in salt. We changed the salt regularly over the next 10 weeks.
Today our fish was ready to go through the final process of mummification.
