Where are preserved mummies found?
I would say in any ancient Egyptian tomb
mummies r preserved pharaohs or upper class of ancient egypt --------------------------------- nah, even peasants were mummified..not just as elaborate as the pharoahs. And there are different kinds of mummies. mummies aren't only found in Egypt but they are all over the world--probably not preserved precisely as how egyptians have done them but they are mummies nonetheless. Some mummies found in Europe still retains their facial feature and what they ate on their last meal can…
Egyptian mummies are wrapped for preservation. It is part of the embalming process when the prepare the dead for the second life. They believed that they had to keep their bodies in perfect condition, and wrapping was just a part to keep them preserved. ------------ not all of them are wrapped. Some mummies are preserved due to extreme environment condition
There are TONS of mummies outside of Egypt!! there have them all over Europe which some are even better preserved than Egyptian mummies. One mummy was found in russia and her facial features can still be seen (so we actually know 95% of how she looks like-- -5 because not her eyes) she still has her body tattooes etc...they call her princess (i don't remember her name)...
People preserve bodies (which makes mummies) because the person was od some importance to a family or to a kingdom. --------------------------- egyptian mummies doesn't necessarily mean that they are from an important family or kingdom. Egyptians believe in after-life so they preserved the bodies by mummifying them...so it means even the poor ones we mummified. They did not have tombs as elaborate and full of riches like the pharoahs or upperclass family but they were…
The ancient Egyptian mummies connected to the belief that the soul called the "Ba" would leave the body at death, but the bodies were preserved so that the Ba could find its way back. Mummies were wrapped with charms to protect the soul through its journey in the underworld. The organs preserved in the canopic jars were considered to be essential, however, the brain was unwanted and removed after death.
There were several places. The most famous are the Egyptian pyramids, but only a small minority of (royal) mummies were put to rest there. Most were buried in the Valley of the Kings in Egypt, in subterranean graves dug out in the rock. Non-royal mummies were interred in dug-out tombs elsewhere. Mayan and Inca mummies have been found in caves high in the mountains where the cold climate preserved them.
A mummy is a human or animal, whose skin and organs have been preserved by either intentional or incidental exposure to chemicals, extreme cold (ice mummies), very low humidity, or lack of air when bodies are submerged in bogs, so that the recovered body will not decay further if kept in cool and dry conditions.
Mummies are so important to ancient Egypt because they preserved the dead and they believed that the steps above a tomb would boost the sole into heaven. They took out all of the organs and pulled the brain out of the nose and put it in a Canopic Jar which was eventualy put into the tomb or pyramid with the preserved mummy .
Mummies are kings. It can also be an animal. Mummies were made because the Egyptians believed in afterlife. So it needed to be preserved. They take out the brain with a hook looking thing through the nose. Then they take out internal organs. They leave in the heart because they need it to go into the afterlife. That is what a mummy is made of?
Even ordinary citizens are mummified... also, mummies cannot be only applied to egyptians. Bog mummies are the best preserved mummies out there--even better than Egyptian mummies because with bogs, we can easily recreate how the person looks like or even what the person last ate before he/she died. It's pretty cool! check it out!
