  • Reading Level: Grade 2

It’s hard to believe when we see an ancient Egyptian mummy in a museum that it is the body of a real person who lived more than 5,000 years ago. But thanks to the skills of embalmers, or mummy makers, today we are able to look into the face of an ancient pharaoh or queen. What techniques were used to preserve bodies? What sacred rituals were performed? And what myths and legends did the ancient Egyptians believe about the afterlife?
