All right, TombQuesters. 

 

I’ve got one question for you: When you come face-to-wrappings with a mummified baddie who’s feeling cranky after being woken up from a centuries-long nap, will you have the know-how to take them down? As Alex and Ren learn in TombQuest #1: Book of the Dead, some re-animated scoundrels can’t be slain with swords. The most powerful weapon? KNOWLEDGE!!!

 

To make sure you’re all ready when the tombs open (only 35 days to go!!!), I’ve assembled a mini True or False quiz to test your Egyptian expertise. See how many fake facts can you spot!

 

1. T or F: When people were mummified in Ancient Egypt, all of their organs were removed… except for their lungs.

 

2. T or F: Both men and women wore make-up in Ancient Egypt because it protected their faces from the sun. They also thought it had healing powers. 

 

3. T or F: The Book of the Dead isn’t actually a book… it’s a collection of magic spells used used to help guide people in the afterlife. The spells are written on all kinds of things, from mummy wrappings (Eek!) to tomb walls (which are kind of tricky to fit into a book).

 

4. T or F: Some people kept a scarab beetle as a pet because they believed it would protect their home and bring them good luck.

 

5. T or F: Each stone block used to build the Great Pyramid of Khufu (the largest of the Giza Pyramids) weighed 4,000 lbs.

 

Answers: 1. False! All of the organs were removed except for their hearts. The heart had to stay in the body so it could be weighed to determine whether a person would be allowed into the afterlife.   2. True!   3. True!   4. False! Cats were the right creature to have at home if you were looking for protection and good luck.   5. False! Each stone block was 5,000 LBS! Crazy, right?

I may be lame,

But i am a bit of game,

 

I know almost all these, because I love Egyptian history.

 

False, all the important organs were placed in canopic jars.

True, both wore makeup, especially around their eyes.

True, the Book of the Dead is  a collection of magic spells written in ancient hyroglyphs.

This one I believe is false, though the scarab beetles were sacred to the Egyptians. According to hieroglyphic paintings, their pets included dogs, cats, monkeys, lions, gazelles, and mongoose.

True, each stone block weighs about two tons, (four thousand pounds.) And the Egyptians who built them had to push/carry them up ramps to set them in place. Yeah.

1. False—the Egyptians believed that all the things we think of today as controlled through the brain were controlled through the heart. So they left that behind.

just joined, what do u do?

1. False. The four main 4 organs were taken out of the body and put in jars that represented some of the Egyptian idols. In fact, the brain was always left in.

Imsety's jar would have the liver, Hapy would get the lungs, Duamutef would get  the stomach,  and Qebehsenuef took the intestines.

 

2. True. They believed the makeup gave them the protection of Horus and Ra.

 

3. True. But the way you stated it is false. The Bookf of the Dead was written on papyrus and tomb walls. Not only were there spells, but beautiful, detailed illustrations.

 

4.False. The scarab bettle was a symbol of death and rebirth. Scarabs (Or, more logically, dung beetles) lay their eggs in balls of dung. Because of this, it was believed that a scarab pushed the sun across the sky (Like the dung beetle pushes the ball of dung). The warm sphere would give life (ex, baby beetles being born). Since the beetles came out of the dung, Egyptians believed that the beetle had been reborn into its young.  Scarabs represent dawn, and are known as Khepri (he who came forth). Scarab amulets were worn for protection (not just of home) and religion. Scarabs were not kept as pets. In the Catholic religion, Moses gave the Egyptians plagues. The fourth plague, swarms, were of scarab beetles. The word 'flies' was added to better translate the bug that would plague Egypt.

 

5. False. The pyramid of Khufu was built from 2,300,000 blocks of stone, that weigh from 2-30 tons each. Some blocks even weigh 50 tons!

 

I hope you can read through this, because I really worked hard on it.

You are wrong, better luck next time!

I know a lot about ancient Egypt, as I was very interested in it when I was little, and still am.

Thank you,

-Strawberry

Ok. I had an Egypt unit in school last year, so I should know this.

 

Number 1 is false! All of their organs were removed except for their HEART. They believed that your heart was the center of all your knowledge (Now we know it's actually the brain...)

 

Number 2... IDK!!!

 

Number 3: TRUE!!! yes, I learned this!

 

Number 4: I think might be true. All I know is that the scarab beetle was a sacred animal in Egyptian culture. 

Number 5: AHH, IDK! All I know is that the stones weighed a LOT. If one landed on your foot, well... I don't want to say the rest.
