Mummification is a process of human preservation. Mummies have enthralled researchers and the public for generations, but we still have a lot we can learn about the process.

The decomposition of the human body begins almost immediately after death, but by removing the organs and the bodily fluids, then subjecting the body to secret processes the Egyptians were able to keep the bodies in tact for thousands of years.

Even with all the hieroglyphs and writings humanity has found of this ancient civilization, the exact process of mummification is still unknown. via Curiosity
