Coffins, Etc.
Eternal Rest?
A priest leads a procession of mourners, followed by bearers carrying food offerings and all the objects you will need in the afterlife.
Mourners should
be hired professionals.
Priests burn
sweet smelling
incense, recite
prayers and
perform the
opening of the
mouth ceremony
when you reach
your tomb.
They should sob
and wail loudly,
wear blue dresses
(the colour of
mourning) and
throw ash on
themselves.

Based on the book You Wouldn't Want To Be An Egyptian Mummy!
