Once you have been wrapped, you will need a good wooden coffin. If you are very wealthy you could have as many as three coffins all fitting snugly inside one another. Make sure that they have pictures of the
gods and the correct spells painted on them to protect you. Of course, they should also have plenty of hieroglyphs singing your praises written on them.
With you inside them, the nest of coffins will finally be placed in your tomb inside a large stone coffin called a sarcophagus.
Skilled carpenters are always in demand in ancient Egypt. Make sure yours works to a high standard and finishes on time.
Tools are made of wood or stone and some have blades made of bronze.
Based on the book You Wouldn't Want To Be An Egyptian Mummy!
