Canopic Jars for all people

     The weird reason why people have Canopic Jars is that their bodies will decay faster with the organs in it. The only organ to be kept in the body is the heart. The reason why they keep it in the body is because they keep it for their afterlife. The only part I think is weird is that if they didn't have their organs taken out then their organs would decay and their afterlife would be over. They also use Canopic Jars because if they don't have the organs then their body will not decompose which I think is gross. The last thing is that the Eygptians use Canopic Jars as little coffins for the organs.

  1. I thought that was interesting to learn about but a question I had is does only pharoahs use canopic jars or does everyone?
