Preserved Bodies

Do you know how a mummy stayed preserved? Sometimes ice surrounded the body of the mummy, so the body didn't rot. Chemicals that kept bugs and animals away were also on the wrapper they wrapped the body in. Lastly, egyptians would store the mummy in a tomb so nobody would destroy them. If mummies are in good condition because of this, scientists can find a lot out about the past.
