How to Make a Mummy

The Getty Museum demonstrates  how ancient Egyptians made mummies in the first short video below. In the second video, a museum associate offers more detail about their mummy and what it says about Egyptian society. You can read more about it here at Open Culture, where I found the video and story. Another great site about mummification and more interactive, is this one at the Oriental Institute at the University of Chicago.
