In Ancient Mayan civilizations, it’s seen that the differences between burial practices then and there really weren’t much different than ones we see nowadays. I just find it really interesting that their customs for the dead were so similar to what we see in America today. In Stiff, Mary Roach tells of many ways dead bodies are used to advance knowledge of science and how the human body works. She also talks about many normal ways for a body to be eternally laid to rest. Two of the more common ways she discusses is burial and cremation, which happen to be the two ways Mayans would commonly use.
The worshipping of Aten was also present in Tutankhamun's tomb, the most obvious piece being the throne depicting Tutankhamun and Ankhensenamun together with Aten. The Shabti was a funerary figurine used in Ancient Egypt. The Shabti were placed in tombs among the grave goods and were intended to act as servants or minions for the deceased, should they be called upon to do manual labour in the afterlife. In Tutankhamun's tomb 413 Shabti Figures were found, source I shows 2 of them. This tells us that Tutankhamun did in fact believe in the afterlife.
He starts by outlining the guidelines of what is safe to eat. “The main principles involved are, using senses and common sense to evaluate the condition of food, knowing the dumpsters in a particular area and checking them frequently, and always wonder why the food was discarded”(357). He is convinced that a lot of perfectly good food is discarded. Canned goods turn up fairly often in dumpsters and are among the safest foods; however, some canned foods can cause fatal diseases like botulism. Dried foods such as crackers, cookies, cereal, chips and pasta are usually safe to eat, once they are free from visible contaminates.
Thus, mummification was a 70-day complicated preservation technique used to prevent the royal body from decay. This involved the process of embalming and drying the dead body in the belief that the body would be necessary in the Ancient Egyptian afterlife. At first glance, there were large amounts of evidence of black sticky resin and ointment which have been spread throughout the body that have blackened the cloths and parts of the body. These chemicals the Ancient Egyptians used have caused the body to become hard and dry to prevent microbial decay from dampness. Experts have made further analysis on the external

The second permit we are requesting will allow us to dump 500 to 700 tons of fly ash in our own Type III classified landfill. We are requesting these permits for a number of reasons. The first requested permit is not only an environmentally safe option, but it will also greatly help the community. By pelletizing and selling 300 to 500 tons of fly ash as low grade fertilizer, Farnsworth would be helping the local farmers and giving back to the community. The second permit is just as environmentally safe as the first.
1. The first step in putting together a mummy was to gather the tools and parts that would be needed for the process. You need Linen and Glue, Linen was used to wrap the body, 12 layers thick, Canopic Jars , Canopic jars were special jars in which the internal organs were preserved, Table, The embalming table was specially designed at an angle so blood and bodily fluids could drain from the corpse, Natron, Natron was is a special salt-like substance found in Egypt, that played an important role in the drying and preservation during the embalming process, Knives, Tweezers, Awls and Needles, Knives and awls were used to open the abdomen for the removal of the internal organs, Bronze Hooks is used to remove the brain. 2. The first organ removed was the brain.
Molecular Biology The molecular biology of Contagion was fairly accurate in terms of the physical descriptions of the MEV-1. For example, the virus was pleomorphic and tended to be ovoid in shape, 20:23. Pleomorphic in shape meant that that the progeny virus could evolve to have different shapes to meet the environmental demands (Beck et al., 1982). There are viruses like this such as the Enteric Coronavirus which is primarily found in Arizona and other hot, dry climates like the Middle East (Beck et al., 1982). Enteric coronavirus causes gastroenteritis and can be found year round in stool unlike Rotavirus that normally is found in the months of winter (Beck et al., 1982).
They both used stone and mud bricks as the predominant building material. Ancient Egyptian houses were made out of mud collected from the Nile River. It was placed in molds and left to dry in the hot sun to harden for use in construction. There is consensus among historians and Egyptologists that the ancient Egyptians were the first builders ever known to man; they taught humanity how to design and erect buildings; thus laying grounds for human civilization, urbanization and man's settlement in a specific homeland of his own for the first time in history. Cities were built in cultivation land near the Nile River so the natural flooding would water their crops, and bring with it natural minerals needed by the crops.
Many houses in York were demolished which initially caused outrage but it is now apparent that this could actually be seen as beneficial because more and more stone houses were replacing them. Improved harvests meant that people were healthier due to a better diet. Cesspits were lined with stone and were now emptied when they were full. The abbey of St Mary’s had a functional sewer and clean water facilities. Houses in the Norman era were built by professional carpenters instead of the home owners and were kept clean through sweeping.
