Describe the mummification process.

They first used spices and perfumes so it won't smell bad after the mummification process. After that they took out all the organs except the heart. They thought that the heart had all the intelligence, so they took the brain out. Finally they wrapped the body with linen. They had to take all these steps, so the body doesn't decompose in the future nor lose it's shape.
