Egyptian Embalmers

Today, we’ve been mummifying tomatoes!

Over the past few weeks, we’ve been learning about the process of mummification. Therefore, we thought we should have a go at being Egyptian embalmers! We mummified tomatoes and will now observe how they change over the next two weeks.

We started by wiping clean the tomatoes with anti-bacterial gel to represent how the embalmers would cleanse the body. We then made a small incision and scooped out the seeds inside the tomato. After that, we stuffed the tomato with salt and will now be observing the tomatoes closely to observe how they change.
