Pharaoh Launch Day

The Mummification of Mrs Hobbs!

Today we launched our 'Pharaohs' topic by watching the mummification of Mrs Hobbs!

First we laid her out on the table, then we put a hook up her nose and pulled out her brains. After that we used a sharp knife to take out her intestines, lungs, liver and heart - but we did keep them safe in canopic jars! Last of all we covered her with natron, left her for forty days and bandaged her up in linen. Thanks Mrs Hobbs - you're a great mummy!

P.S No actual harm came to Mrs Hobbs in the making of this film!
