During our learning about the Ancient Egyptians, we discovered the mummification process. We were so fascinated (and a little disgusted) that we wanted to try out the process ourselves! After scooping out the ‘guts’ of the orange and drying it out with paper towels, we used a mixture of bicarbonate of soda and salt to make natron and added cinnamon and cloves. We then wrapped our oranges tightly in bandages and left them in a warm dry place. The photos show the the unwrapping and results!
