Mummification happened only to the pharaohs and riches. People sometimes say that mummies are wrapped up in toilet paper, but they are not. Actually they wrapped up a mummy in linen wrapping. Lets get to the point know...

The mummification process started with the evisceration of the body. Then, all internal organs were removed except for the heart. After that, they would put an amulet with a scarab around your neck to protect the mummy in the netherworld. The next step was to dessicate the body. You had to put the body in natron salt and wait a period of days for the salt to dry up on the skin. know after you wash off all the salt off the mummy you wrap it up in linen wrapping and then put it in its sarcophagus.
