Ancient Egyptians believed that after death a person would go through a transformation to a better life after death. After the embalming which took about 70 days the Opening of the Mouth ceremony was performed giving the body the ability to speak and eat again. For this reason they would need food for their journey. There were also many other items that would be needed in the next life that were put into the mausoleums of the wealthy Egyptians and Royalty.
