Ancient Egypt

Egypt is a very hot place that has very little water.


Ancient Egyptians built pyramids for their pharaohs and queens. 

Egyptians believed that if you put the treasures and jewels in the tomb the treasures would go with the pharaoh to the next life. People tried to steal the treasure from the pharaoh's tomb but they ran the risk of getting  cursed.

Process of Mummification

 

  • The first step was to let everyone know about the death. They did this by sending a messenger out onto the streets to announce that someone had died. This allowed people to get themselves ready for the mourning period and ceremony.
  • After that they had to embalm the body. The embalmers were located in special tents or buildings and the buildings were called embalming workshops. The embalming workshops were maintained by priests and often during the embalming, the priests would have to go out of the building or tent to get away from the bad smell.

Egyptian Temples

 

  • The ancient Egyptians believed that temples were the homes of the gods and goddesses. 
  • Every temple was dedicated to a god or goddess and was worshiped by the temple priests and the pharaohs.
  • The large temple buildings were made of stone so that they would last forever. Their walls were covered with scenes that were carved onto the stone then brightly painted. These scenes showed the pharaoh fighting in battles and performing rituals with the gods and goddesses.
