They used mummification to preserve the deseased body so that the soul was capable of moving on to the afterlife. The hot sand of the desert would dry out the body and the deseased wasn't able to make their way into the afterlife.
Egyptians believed that the human soul was connected to their hearts. So they wanted to protect it and preserve the dead.

No, people do not still use the mummification process, however it can occur naturally in dry places like a desert.


Resin was used by the Egyptians as part of the mummification process. The resin was poured into the person's skull after the brain was removed to help it keep its shape. It was also used to secure bandages in place.


Mummification tells the world several things about the Ancient Egyptians. Firstly, it shows that they believed in an after life of sorts. They believed that the human spirit lived on and the body must be preserved after death.


When Egyptians did mummification they learned about what is in the human body and found out a lot about it.
