Why was the Pharaohs Ihnton dead

Miraculous nature and overseas: Why was the Pharaohs Ihnton dead?

The Egyptians loved life, and it was important for them to continue to enjoy even after death.

The Aldvinat good part of the acceptance of death. The Egyptian-preoccupied with death, but they Samoa and time-consuming to prepare for after their death and the other world. A new scientific study showed that the ancient Egyptians were using complex mixtures of plant and animal extracts for embalming their dead.
British researchers have conducted tests for thirteen sample of the material used by the ancient Egyptians in the embalming Momciawathm. The analysis revealed the existence of a very large components, including the types of animal fats and vegetable oils, beeswax and Glues plant.
The researchers discovered that the materials that he created the Pharaohs Taxidermy was a mixture of cheap materials, and other precious and rare at that time, such as oil, rice and Juniper who were importing from outside Egypt.
The analysis showed conducted on samples taken from Momciawat belong to successive eras that the Pharaohs have developed materials Taxidermy over time by adding components of the deadly germs to protect Moumyawat of decomposition.
A study by two scholars of Chemistry, University of Bristol in Britain, in order to study the evolution of methods Taxidermy Over two thousand and three hundred years of age Pharaonic civilization
Scientists monitoring the evolution of materials Taxidermy through the change in the components during that long period of time. He Investigators are Dr. Richard Aevrashid Dr. Stephen Buckley that vegetable oils and animal fats were the basic components of materials Taxidermy.
The scientists believed that the ancient Egyptians were combined these oils and fats that were available and inexpensive limited quantities of other materials are scarce and expensive to prepare materials that were used in embalming the dead.
I think that the Egyptians Moumia place is the soul and spouse and instinct. The other goal in life is to life through Ilkka or spouse because they reservation physical form of the deceased. We have therefore developed the ancient Egyptian method Taxidermy to maintain a sound body and maintains physical features to identify the spirit, because the destruction of the body may mean extinction spirit.
The most distinguished Aldvinat restricted to kings, priests and their families and senior officials. Even those people who have not been able to get Dvinat distinct bombers to members of their families that Ejehzounam reasonable limitation of Embalming.
The operations Taxidermy takes about seventy days, and here was cleaning the body of the deceased and to cleanse the world journey begins another. The next step is to extract Guts Interior, in order to dry up the Guts To prevent erosion was placed in Nitrite, a type of salt used in the drying desert.
The Guts was damage to the tapes linen and then placed in pots Alcanobh. The clean formation stomach and filled in quantities other Nitrite. No tended Embalmers never deceased heart where I think the heart is the center of the entity and reason. The brain tissue and around the products were very carefully.

The fear of making the female face during remove the brain, that this process has become very important during Taxidermy. However, the brain was difficult to maintain and therefore I believe that the ancient Egyptians were not an important part of the body. After this process, the body covering Balntron to extract moisture from it. This has allowed the body to slowly dried and kept in its outer.
The process of drying the body takes about forty days. Here Nitrite was removed from the body, which was then wash. The body wear in hundreds of yards of linen sheets. Each finger was surrounded and then damaged unit then all of the hand or foot.
During the process of the body wrapped packages placed Amulets and Conjurations to the body and read the calls and prayers also been written in the Scrolls. It was common for a mask or similar in Moumia between reels the head. After this process has been Moumia Balratnj compromise with the Scrolls. In the end the damage to Kevin Moumia or cloth.
After ending process Moumia Taxidermy and become ready for burial, the rites and rituals begin. Here, the priests use a special feeling of the parts which were due to open for the other world. This was called the weather Tksh hole mouth. Facilitate tool used by the priest to open Hawass deceased (or retrieval) be able to deal with the deceased and his food speaks in the other world.
We believe that these ancient Egyptians Tksh also launched Alba and Ilkka to move to the other world. When completed all the rituals Moumia within coffin placed in the burial chamber and closed the cemetery and ends. The former believe in the idea of Egyptian life after death. The ancient Egyptian religions say that man can not send in the afterlife only after returning the soul to the body.
I think that the Pharaohs embalming the dead to protect his body from decomposition spirit to be able to find the body of the process of the Baath. The Pharaohs have developed methods Taxidermy over hundreds of years and they discovered that it must first remove the internal organs to protect the body from decomposition, and then addressed Glues salt and rice, oil, honey and bitumen view drying and protection of germs.
Investigators stated in the report Nscherah scientific journal Nature that the selection of the components of materials Embalming was influenced by the cost factor and throwing fashion that prevailed. If he is wealthy former Egyptians are keen to buy precious materials Taxidermy to honor their dead as some wealthy resort today for the purchase of precious Coffins and build luxurious graves

Amun, King of Gods, appeared during the Old Kingdom as a member of the eight cosmic gods of Hermopolis. Early on, Amun was a minor god of the city of Thebes, where he eventually flourished and gained prominence through the political rise of that city.
By the Middle Kingdom, Amun became the one and only supreme deity in Egypt, and the lord of the Karnak Temples. Together with his wife, Mut, and their son, Khonsu, the moon god, the three formed the Theban Triad, a sort of heavenly family for their people. Each year a festival would be held celebrating the marriage of Amun and Mut.

Suez Canal

The Suez Canal is considered to be the shortest link between the east and the west due to its unique geographic location; it is an important international navigation canal linking between the Mediterranean sea at Port said and the red sea at Suez. The idea of linking the Mediterranean sea with the red sea by a canal dates back to 40 centuries as it was pointed out through history starting by the pharaohs era passing by the Islamic era until it was dredged reaching its current condition today.
It is considered to be the first artificial canal to be used in Travel and Trade. The Whole Idea of establishing a canal linking between the red sea and the Mediterranean dates back to the oldest times, as Egypt dredged the firs artificial canal on the planet’s surface. The pharaohs dredged a canal link in between river Nile and the red sea. This canal ran a while and then stopped until Muslims conquered Egypt under the leader ship of Amr-Ebn-El-Aas complying with the orders of Omar Ebn El Khattab. When the Portuguese discovered Ras El Raga El Saleh at the beginning of the 16th century the world trade movement changed making Egypt and Alexandria not considered the heart of it anymore.
After that it was Francis Delicips the one with the idea of re-dredging the Canal in (25 April, 1859) and was formally opened during the ruling of El Khedive Ismael (17 November, 1869) in a major celebration which was attended by most of Europe’s kings and Princes and the license period was 99 years from the date of opening of the canal and then it becomes after that a property of the Egyptian Government, and the French owned most of its stock.
After July 1952 Revolution, president Gamal Abd El Naser publicized the canal in announcement in (26 July, 1956) making the management of the canal a 100% Egyptian, which enraged the major countries leading to the Triad assault on Egypt in (29 October, 1956) which caused to the closing of the canal and it was reopened in (march 1957) and after that it was closed again ( 1976) due to the ships laying in the bottom of the canal and was not reopened again until (June 1975).
The dredging of the canal took almost 10 years using Egyptian labor, and it was opened for navigation for the first time in 17 November, 1869. Its depth was about 8 meters, its water are was 304 m2 and the largest ship load that can pass through was 5000 tons, which was typical for ships sizes in these days. As the ships developed and increased its sizes, the canal needed to be developed, which happened when it was still a foreign joint venture before being publicized to take ships with depth of 35 feet and its water area to be 1100 m2 by the end of 1956 and when the canal was publicized by the Egyptian government on the 26th of July, 1956. The Egyptian administration was keen to develop the
In May 1962, the water area of the canal was to reach 1800 m2 and the allowed depth to 38 feet. In June 1966, a development was to be executed on 2 stages as it was announced the depth would reach 48 and 58 feet consecutively. This program was started in February 1962, but was soon halted due to the war that erupted on the 5th of June, 1967. It was reopened for international; navigation in June 1975 after purifying it from the ships that sank in its bottom during in the 1962 and 1973 wars with the same water area and depth before it was closed. The development projects then started by the Egyptian administration in order to receive ships of a 210,000 tons load, specially after increasing the water are to 4800 m2 and a depth of 62 feet , with a length of 190.25 km, in addition to the redesign of the canal's turns so that each one has a half radius of at least 5000 m and also dredging a new verge starting from the 17th km south of port said heading directly to the Mediterranean east of port Fouad to allow the loaded ships going north to go to the sea without passing through port said port. The Suez canal is distinguished by its stable level of water which varies very slightly having the highs tide reaching 50 cm in the north while reaching up to 2 m in the south.
Vice Admiral/Ahmed Fadel has assured head of the Suez Canal port authority, the depth will reach 66 feet by 2006 pointing out that this stage will enable all container vessels; about 17,000 container vessels; as well as taking all bulk vessels world wide. His Excellency also pointed that the Canal will be able to take in about 99 % of all methods used in world maritime transport after reaching a depth of 72 feet in 2012, as well as taking about 99% of he dead weight tons for the bulk vessels 82% of the petroleum tanks and a 100% of all the remaining types of ships used in maritime transport; specially container vessels with all its future generations; in addition to empty vessels reaching up to 560 thousand tons.
