Mummy’s Day

In preparation for our grand procession and interment of the “fish pharaoh” at the end of term, our priests of Anubis began to wash clean, and prepare the body for mummification. The body was washed and its internal organs were removed. Its heart was left in but the lungs, stomach, liver, and intestine were placed in a canopic jar. The whole body was covered in natron ( a mixture of salt and baking soda) that will dry and preserve the fish over the next few weeks.

The next stage of the process will happen then.
