The advert reads: ‘We are currently keen to talk to some one who, faced with the knowledge of their own terminal illness and all that it entails, would nonetheless consider undergoing the process of an ancient Egyptian embalming.’
An English scientist claims to have unlocked the secrets of mummification. His efforts at recreating the work of Egyptians will be the subject of the documentary.
Embalming was a common death ritual for 3,000 years, when some cultures believed it was necessary preparation for the afterlife.
