Mummy by zeartul.jpg

A mummy is a corpse of any creature whose flesh has been preserved to some extent through the negation of physical, chemical, and biological degradation.

Methods of mummification

By far, the most famous method of mummification is the intentional mummification practiced by the ancient Egyptians. In this process, the organs were cut out and the dead body was treated with natron salt in order to dry it out. The body was then bound and sealed away, and the desert climate further aided in preserving the corpse.

In addition to intentional mummification, natural mummification can take place in cases of extreme climate where moisture is scarce. In addition to deserts, mummies can be created in icy regions, where the body is preserved through freezing.

Discovered mummies

Mummies have been found throughout the world in practically every region where conditions will permit.
