PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This is a 22 slide, highly animated, power point presentation on the Ancient Civilizations - Ancient Egyptians & Mummification. Each of the slides are editable so you can change it to fit your individual needs.

The ancient Egyptians believed that, after death, the body was the home of the individual's spirit as he or she journeyed through the after-life. If the body was destroyed through decomposition, there was danger that the spirit would also be destroyed. Preserving the body in as close to its life-like condition would assure the preservation of the individual's spiritual essence."Mummification,” was the process of preserving the integrity of an individual through embalming the body of the deceased.

It is believed that the process of mummification was developed at least 2,500 years before the birth of Christ. The process included 4 phases: the removal of the internal organs, the use of a salt compound to dry the hollow body, stuffing the dried body to restore its original shape, and tightly wrapping the body with strips of linen.

The process of mummification was not restricted to the Egyptian Pharaohs. All of the social classes employed the ritual, with the level of elaborateness of the mummification serving as a symbol of a family's status.

The heart was needed in the afterlife. When your soul was “reanimated” your body was reanimated by the soul so that you could answer questions when in the hall of judgment. And the heart was basically weighed against the feather of truth. And if your heart was heavy, it meant that you had lied or stolen or cheated or done something bad, then you would not make it into the afterworld.
