Land of Mummies
It is commonly known that Ancient Egypt was very intrigued with mummification and rituals regarding the afterlife. However, contrary to what some believe, most people on Egypt were not submitted to mummification rituals. This was a “luxury” that only the elite had. Despite this, even the lowest of peasants would eventually be mummified anyway. This is due to the fact that the dessert’s heat and soil were enough to create a natural mummification process.
