Death was a sad time and a time for mourning in ancient Egypt. © Karen Devine 2013
As part of the grieving process women wore special clothing and wept loudly, whilst men stopped bathing, shaving and eating. When a pharaoh died, the entire country entered into mourning. © Karen Devine 2013
The deceased person’s body was taken to a cemetery found in the low desert where it was purified and embalmed for mummification. Various spells and prayers were uttered by the embalming priests. © Karen Devine 2013
From there the body was transported by boat to the west bank of the Nile for the funeral. Loud wailing could be heard from the mourners. © Karen Devine 2013
After the Opening of the Mouth ceremony was performed, the body was placed inside the coffin and then inside the sarcophagus. It was then placed in the tomb. © Karen Devine 2013
Many aspects of daily life were buried too such as furniture, figurines and cosmetics. The tomb was then sealed. © Karen Devine 2013
Poorer people however did not have such lavish and extravagant funerals. © Karen Devine 2013
Burials for poorer people meant that the deceased was placed in the warm sands of the Egyptian desert in a foetal position. © Karen Devine 2013
The dry nature of the nation allowed a natural mummification process to take place in these sands. © Karen Devine 2013
