dc.description.abstractThe mummies of Ancient Egypt have become famous in modern history for their unique burial styles and incredible preservation techniques inspired by their distinct and diverse religion. However, the depiction of these ideas tends to be less than accurate. This thesis explores the true nature of mummification within Egypt by examining the religious ideas that inspired it using primary accounts, archaeological excavations, and artifacts dating back nearly 5,000 years. By exploring the political atmosphere of Ancient Egypt and evolution of the Osiris myth, this thesis will present an alternative to the mainstream understanding of Ancient Egypt and its preservation practices in an effort to dispel the modern myth surrounding Egyptian mummification.
