Mummifying fruit and vegetables

  • 3rd Mar, 2022 at 4:23pm

As part of our topic on Ancient Egypt, we have done an experiment to see how the process of mummification worked.

We have buried pieces of fruit and vegetables in the mixture of salt and bicarbonate of soda which is meant to resemble nitron, the mixture used by the Ancient Egyptians.

Alongside our experiment, we have control samples that show us what happens to fruit and vegetables when they have been left out for some time.

We are planning to carry out observing the samples for the rest of this term and will be posting weekly updates.
