    That’s ok ^^ It fascinates me so I want to learn. I know that’s one way they did it (books all vary in description), diddn’t they have a special table with a type of basin attached for it to trickle into?

    One little remark, the mummification process that you show in these magnificent pictures, was bestowed for the wealthier class. Ordinary or common people could not afford a process and burial as this. They were buried as you show in your first picture. A simple grave in the dessert, with some meager offerings. But I must say, great work you did, one of the best representations about mummification Ive ever seen.

    @Ranoferhotep Yeah I learnt about that. What I don’t know though is where were they buried exactly? You hear so much about the King’s tombs but not much about the others in the non-royal yet wealthy class.
    And thankyou so much! 🙂

    @Pagyptsian, There are different burial sites known, the oldest in Sakkarah and Gizeh, but also in Upper Egypt, near the Nubian border, are splendid tombs rediscovered. On the west bank of the Nile, there is another valley known as the valley of the nobles a burial site where the wealthier people of Thebes were buried. And off course the valley of the queens which was reserved for queens, but also princes and princesses of Egypt.

    @Pagyptsian My pleasure, I had to be brief, we dont have that many characters we can type here. Trough Google, there is plenty to be found about the ancient tombs, sometimes tricky to find the Wright keywords.
    May I use your video on my blog? My blog is in Dutch, but I can post the translation of your text in Dutch. With credits

    Very good job….only thing is members of the royal family had their arms bent across the chest isntead of down low…a bent right arm across the chest meant “pharoah”…bent left arm meant queen or female royal family member.
