Egypt Times

Studies by Professor of Antropologia Bill Manley; of the University of Glasgow. Treat the remains of our fellow human beings, even though they are anonymous with care and dignity, is a universal human instinct; even in times of war or disasters. More sophisticated burials, prepared the body of the dead through mummification, i.e. the artificial preservation of the corpse. This process involved firstly, the removal of the internal organs (evisceration), and then cleaning and purification of the body before dissecting in natron. Then the body was laundered and covered with oil and resin, it encased in large strips of linen, and was finally placed in a coffin. Finally, they used to embalzamar internal organs and deposited in the Tomb within jugs.

These practices were carried out for more than 3000 years. Why did ancient Egyptians some preparations so complex for burials, and what beliefs they lived after them?. Origins of mummification; in been times, burials were usually practiced in the hot and dry sand of the deserts around the Nile. As result the body quickly remaining desiccation naturally avoiding decomposition, so the skeleton, skin, tissues and hair of the individual was often preserved intact (only changed the color of skin and hair). It is said that inspired the mummification were exposed to the winds of the desert or animal burials. According to this opinion the Egyptians were intrigued by the preservation of the body and the implications that it had in the continuation of life after death.

In later been periods, burials became increasingly complicated, the corpse was placed in a container, or the grave was lined in some way. In both cases the body was no longer in contact with the heat of the sand and, therefore, could decompose, unless it preserves of artificially before burial. There are many differences among the principal characteristics of the funerary practices of the prehistoric times and those of the Pharaonic period. First, while most of the bodies of been burials were collapsed (in the form of fetus), the corpses of later times were placed in elongated position. Secondly, since the beginning of the Pharaonic period, the tombs consisted of a burial chamber and a separate area for offerings, this structure of two parties was crucial in Egyptian burials for 3000 years. Third body are not disecaba, and the most basic form of mummification only entailed cleaning and purification of the body rather than its desiccation. Finally the burial included a series of rituals, of which there is no evidence belonging to the prehistoric times.
