British Museum Trip

What a lovely time we had at the British Museum last week - although some of it was a bit gory!!

We went to find out about Egyptians.  We saw lots of Mummies and found out how they used to mummify bodies.

When somebody died, they removed the brain through the nose.  They then cut a hole in the side of the body, to remove all of the organs, except the heart.

The body was dried out with natron (salt) and after 40 days, it was wrapped in bandages and placed in a case.
